Sheffield’s international contemporary art space, Site Gallery, has re-opened to the public at its Brown Street location following a £1.7million refurbishment. The new gallery is three times bigger in size offering a canvas for artistic experiment and public engagement. Baillor Jalloh reports for Sheffield Live!
Site Gallery has announced an ambitious expansion project with over £2.7m investment to create a new gallery and events space on Paternoster Row. Sheffield’s leading contemporary art space specialises in new media, moving image and performance and will treble the scale of its public offer including a new 262 square metre gallery and a flexible event space for education, creative activity and commercial hires. The plans also provide for a 40-seat café, a shop and business units. Work is planned to commence in April 2017, with the existing gallery to be temporarily closed while work takes place. A programme of pop-up events is planned in the interim. Simon Thake reports for Sheffield Live!
