Through a series of sculpture, performance and installation Ecstatic Rituals explores the tradition of Hull Fair. Reflecting on urban folklore as well as past and present notions of “Britishness”, this exhibition considers the city’s medieval era when the fair was started and when the city of Hull was one of the main sites for international imports to the UK.

Humber Street Gallery is a contemporary art space nestled in the heart of the city’s Fruit Market cultural quarter. Housed in a former fruit warehouse, the gallery will showcase the best in contemporary visual arts from the shocking to the sublime. The gallery seeks to generate debate, push boundaries, encourage new ways of thinking and inspire with a packed programme designed to appeal to those both familiar and not so familiar with the arts.
