Lets See What Happens

126, Artist run gallery is transforming its Queen Street gallery space into a hub of events for four days this March. Hosting a range of educational, unusual, fun and informative events the board aims to move away from it's usual pattern of consecutive exhibitions and open up the space to different kinds of happenings. 126 is looking to explore new possibilities for the gallery and step beyond it's usual comfort zone to 'see what happens' as a result. All are welcome and events are free. 

March 9th – Wednesday:

'By outlining a materialist perspective this presentation will consider the generative capacities of sound. In proposing alternative readings of specific sonic encounters and giving concrete examples the intersections between visual culture, science and theory will be mapped out.'

Men reading poetry written by women and vice versa, the results will be hilarious and touching by turns.
