MUSEUMS AT NIGHT 2011

VISIT EASTSIDE FOR MUSEUMS AT NIGHT 2011 ON FRIDAY 13 MAY 2011

6-8PM: VIVID launches Ecstatic with Companis commission Ultraviolence I

9PM – LATE: We Are Eastside presents CAKEOLOGY

Museums at Night 2011 sees hundreds of museums, galleries, libraries, archives and heritage sites unlock their doors for special evening events over the weekend of May 13-15 and Eastside is no exception!*

Join VIVID from 6-8pm for the launch of ECSTATIC (13 May – 18 June), a visual and sensory season of moving image works and intervention exploring heightened emotions and altered states. ECSTATIC launches with ULTRAVIOLENCE I, a live intervention from Companis; a sly nod to Burgess’s coinage in ‘A Clockwork Orange’, ‘to do the ultra-violent’, the new work will be an intense yet playful experience as inhabitants of the exhibition space interact with coloured light and fluorescence. Adorn yourself in white, if you dare!

From 9pm, we join with our We Are Eastside colleagues (7 Inch Cinema, Capsule, Eastside Projects, Fierce Festival, Grand Union, Ikon Gallery, and VRU) to bring you CAKEOLOGY – a late night Eastside fundraiser where rave meets the W.I. – expect T.99 and Tombola, Bizarre Inc. and Bunting, Acid House and Apple Pie! Cakeology takes place at VIVID and tickets are £4 in advance, available here.

Join us and show your support for arts in Eastside!

*Events also take place at Eastside Projects (6-8pm) and Grand Union (12-8pm) as part of Museums at Night 2011.
