The Gymnasium Gallery in Berwick is inviting families to experience a new series of interactive exhibitions that have been a huge hit at other galleries in the north of England.
Generation Noise opens its doors on on Saturday May 2, followed by Generation Air in July. The exhibitions, designed to appeal to all ages, saw a huge increase in the number of family visitors at the DLI Museum and Gallery in Durham and at Central Art Gallery in Ashton-under-Lyne.
Remarkable interactive, wooden sound machines have been built as Generation Noise. Visitors are can make their own unique noise by cutting out shapes and playing them on the machine’s turntables. The gallery will also be filled with strange and wonderful sounds emanating from giant speaker horns transmitting noise created by visitors tweaking knobs and turning handles on instrumental machines.
James Lowther, head of Berwick Visual Arts said: ”We’re really excited about welcoming these innovative exhibitions to Berwick and giving local people and visitors to the town the chance to see why Generation Noise and Air were so successful at the other venues.”
