Highlighting under the radar arts and culture in Birmingham, UK

Museum of Windows

The Bordesley Centre of Contemporary Art presents The Museum of Windows, opening this weekend.

Through a series of architectural plans Andy Broadey proposes the ‘hypothetical redevelopment of vacant or dilapidated factories and warehouses in Digbeth as art galleries’. The proposals combine aspects of white cube galleries with existing structures of local buildings, whilst also replacing one or more of the outer walls with glass facades. If these were built, they would transform previously abandoned spaces into sites of artistic appreciation. Furthermore, their transparent facades would allow visitors to view the surrounding industrial landscapes.

The opening and artist’s talk takes place on Friday 10 September 6.30-8.30pm. The exhibition is then open 10-5pm on 11-12 September. The Bordesley Centre of Contemporary Art can be found at Unit A3, 2 Bowyer Street, Digbeth. B10 0SA
