Working within current constraints, Emergency takes place at its seventh site — offering a sneak preview of new live work in a brand new home.
With approximately ten live art works dotted through the building, you’ll be guided on a socially-distanced one-way walkthrough — able to pause en route, we estimate a 75 minute total journey time.
