About Town – video installation by national and international artists

This week Birmingham Hippodrome in partnership with Ikon present a unique event showcasing video installations from local, national and international artists.    Called About Town visitors to Southside can visit various places in and around the Hippodrome including the popular National Trust Back to Backs in Inge.   Installations include a compelling piece ‘Broad Street’ by the award winning  Gillian Wearing in Gallon Car Park (opposite The Village in Hurst St)  and the very witty ‘Just Like That’ from talented local artist Dean Kelland  upstairs in the Back to Backs – specially commissioned for this event.

DSC_2663The installations can be viewed over the next three nights (Fri, Sat and Sun from 4pm-10pm) and are entirely FREE.  So if you’re coming for a quick drink in Southside, enjoying a meal in one of the many restaurants or coming to see Slava’s Snow Show don’t miss About Town.
