Contemporary art collides with metal culture in this unique exhibition created by artist Alan Kane, and commissioned as part of ‘Home of Metal'. For this exhibition, Kane conceives the galleries as a domestic space centred on a love of metal, in its material and musical forms. Conceived as a metal ‘lounge', the galleries that constitute this exhibition playfully confound notions of public and private space and expectations of scale, purpose and value.
Participating artists include Jeremy Deller, Una Hamilton Helle, Des Hughes, Jim Lambie, Sarah Lucas, Jessica Mallock, Mike Nelson, Simon Periton, David Shrigley, Mark Titchner, Hayley Tompkins, Cathy Ward, Charlie Woolley, Eric Wright and Kane himself. Collections belonging to Midlands metal fans are also on display, from Kayleigh's collection relating to the American band Halestorm, to 9 year old Millie's collections of skulls and rocks.
