An alternative exhibition space
While the building has limited physical access, we are using the windows of the Hall as an exhibition space. The Hall's windows are its key architectural feature - there 38 in total - and they're a great way of catching passers by in the park.
Exhibitions to date have included 'TSAP@PlattHall', an installation by local arts collective the Terrace Square Artists Project, 'Message to the Neighbourhood', sharing ideas for keeping well in lockdown by local residents, and 'Postcards from the Past', a celebration of the history of the park by the Friends of Platt Fields. You can see our archive of projects below.
This year we're opening up the programme to residents, artists and makers with an open call for ideas relating to the core theme of the Platt Hall Inbetween project - 'people, place, collections'. We'll be publishing details soon so watch this space.
This afternoon I was not running past Platt Hall with hundreds of Park Runners, but having a leisurely walk. Gave me the (rare) opportunity to marvel at the latest display in your windows. It was a joy to view trees in different seasons, styles and locations. Big thankyou to all the team responsible. New Year's Resolution: slow down when passing Platt Hall and check out the windows regularly."
