The Imaginists at the Red Brick Building, Morland Rd Glastonbury present
Outside:Inside – An immersive art and sound event
Sunday 16th September and Sunday 30th September 2018
Outside:Inside is inspired by Ogham, an ancient written language whose alphabetical symbols represent sacred trees, where each tree represents a human feeling or attribute. In response Imaginists artists have created number of visual, sonic and performative works which expand on these ideas and reveal new meanings derived from the natural environment.
Outside:Inside opens on both Sundays at 12-2pm to allow visitors to speak to individual Imaginists pre-event, and is followed at 3pm by a one hour immersive performance of video, sound, installation, vocals and instrumentation.
(performance tickets £5 available on the door).
Outside: Inside is part of Somerset Art Weeks 2018 – All are welcome – child friendly!
