Fashion designer, musician and all-round auteur Danny Passarella turns his senses to art in his out-of-this-world debut exhibition.
The ‘Fantasy Scenes’ in question are ten pieces of wholly original art photography. Their backgrounds feature Danny’s home town of Whitley Bay in the north-east of England, while the subjects themselves are retro arcade machines from the industry’s salad days.
The sci-fi-esque images evoke the wonder of adolescence, and call to mind the importance of visionary thinking to a civilised society.
From radical innovations in the use of colour and form to new materials like neon and interactive, kinetic sculpture, this exhibition reveals some of the most original art of the last 100 years.
The time: 1930s
The place: South America
The stage was set for a major innovation in art. Over the next 50 years, artists across five cities would pioneer a new visual language to express their deeply held beliefs about art and its power to change the world around them.
‘They think I am the most beautiful thing in the world. And I don’t mind being a thing. I don’t want their respect. I want only their animal desire’.

All-meat, all-sex, all-vulnerable, all-powerful. There’s a first time for everything… Isn’t there? A punchy and provocative new play by Bruntwood Prize winner Anna Jordan.
‘Incredibly vivid and really upsetting, but in a brilliant way’ (Marianne Elliot on award-winning YEN).
