Village Underground, 54 Holywell Lane, Shoreditch, London, EC2A 3PQ

Painting with Music creates a musical art gallery using five pieces that take you to different real and imagined worlds.

Let our musicians guide you from the beauty and difficulty of life in rural Wales to Caplet’s vivid painting of the East by way of 1930s Paris. Sound artist Gawain Hewitt will provide a sonic guide book illustrating and commenting on the worlds we visit.

Get ready for a visit to a different kind of art gallery.

This concert will be presented in collaboration with Spitalfields Music.
