July Event Weekend
Event Weekend: 28 & 29 July
The third weekend of scheduled tours, talks and events kicked off with curators' tours of the site. Contemporary Art Society members were treated to a tour on Saturday, with appearances from some of our artists to add sparkle to the day. Tom Dale talked through The Mars Society, its inspirations and the practicalities of the work and Charbel Ackermann treated visitors to a series of broadcast recordings, Can You Love a Radio Amateur?
On Sunday, the Biennial structural engineer, Toby Savage, took a tour through the gardens. Working with props, Toby was able to share some of the hidden work of the engineer that has enabled the artworks to 'fly', whilst remaining firmly on the ground.
