Site is host to a number of works for Art Sheffield 2010 in a range of media, from large wall posters to bookworks to video. One highlight is the collectable postcards and a display by Ruth Ewan, whose work has been inspired by a book called 'The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists', by Robert Tressell, alluding to Sheffield's renowned radical history.

Featured artists include Yael Davids, Ruth Ewan, Charlotte Morgan, Wendelien van Oldenborgh, Hito Steyerl, Emily Wardill and No Fixed Abode.
