In partnership with Ignite Imaginations
Friday 5 – Saturday 13 May
8am – 8pm (6pm on Sunday)
Mussorgsky’s great work Pictures at an Exhibition was inspired by an exhibition of art by Russian painter Viktor Hartmann. Ten movements represent ten artworks and are interspersed with ‘promenades’ which depict moving between the paintings.
For this year’s May Festival, we are recreating the feat but the other way round – Ignite Imaginations’ artists are working together with 10 community groups from across the city to produce ten new artworks in response to Mussorgsky’s music.
