Join a member of the Art Sheffield team on a free guided tour though selected venues that feature in this year’s Art Sheffield festival, including the iconic, brutalist Moore Street electricity substation.

Curated by Martin Clark, Director of Bergen Kunsthall, Art Sheffield 2016 takes as its starting point the political, social, cultural, and material histories of the city of Sheffield, enacted and explored through a carefully selected group of international video, film and sound works, as well as three major new commissions made especially for the exhibition by three British artists. The title of the exhibition, Up, Down, Top, Bottom, Strange and Charm is taken from the six flavours (or types) of quark: the elementary particles that make up every atom, and the fundamental building blocks of matter.
