Headwinds closing performance - A new sound work for Belfast.

Thursday 23 April at 6pm.

To mark the close of the exhibition Stuart Brisley: Headwinds we are delighted to be presenting a new piece of live performance from the artist at a significant off-site location in Belfast city centre.

Contained within a magnificently dilapidated space initially built as site for industry, labour, and exchange, Stuart Brisley will be presenting a new sound work responding to this charged environment on Thursday 23 April at 6pm.

Brisley has been exploring the possibilities of sound in his artistic practice since 1980, constituting new ways of thinking about performance by integrating audio components into live work as well as creating stand-alone sound pieces that exist as autonomous artworks in their own right. Recordings of some these works can now be found within collections such as the Audio Arts Archive at Tate.

The audience for this event will be strictly limited, and tickets must be reserved at the MAC box office or online in advance of the performance.  Ticketholders will be required to meet at the MAC box office at 5.45pm to be guided by a member of staff to the performance site for 6pm.
