The Corn Hall galleries relaunch with Past Present Future and Nicola Hockley

The Corn Hall has relaunched its exhibitions programme in its 2 new galleries.

The Main Galley downstairs holds an exhibition of plans and artefacts connected to the reinvention of the Corn Hall and asks visitors to leave their ideas for the new future of Diss. Lucy Kayne’s photographs document the transformation of the building and are projected onto its walls.

The Upper Gallery holds Techne until 24 May, an exhibition by Nicola Hockley of weaving and textile works inspired by the renovation of the Corn Hall as well as photographs of objects from Diss Museum.

Future exhibitions in the Main Gallery are to include From Hockney to Grayson Perry an exhibition of prints by contemporary British realists from 7 June, with Maggi Hambling,  Mike Webb and upcoming illustrator Alice Lee later in the year.

The Upper Gallery is to showcase the work of local artists and community groups. From 27 May – 7 June  Diss Guild of Weavers and Spinners will display their work and demonstrate techniques. Artists and groups are invited to propose exhibitions as we will shortly be putting the information together for the 2018 programme.
