Tim Noble & Sue Webster: Forever

Fri 16 Mar – Sun 27 May, various times (Free)
Humber Street Gallery

The London duo have had their work exhibited all over the world, and now head to Hull to showcase three works from their extensive back catalogue. Combining form and anti-form with a punk aesthetic, the duo creatively play with the idea of how we perceive abstract images and define them with meaning.

This exhibition will feature a series of light sculptures which are sometimes referred to as anti-monuments – referencing our contemporary consumer culture.
