4th June to 3rd August 2024. FREE
Music Hall, Union Street, Aberdeen AB10 1QS

As part of the 50th anniversary of the establishment of Peacock, the printmaking workshop based in Aberdeen, we've co-commissioned a new piece of animated work for the Music Hall by Glasgow and Copenhagen-based artist, printmaker and publisher David Bellingham.

Bellingham's work is poetic and concise. He uses a diverse range of media, from painting and sculptural installation to books, postcards and other printed material, to explore the relationships between objects, words and contexts, often inverting our preconceptions about them.

Atmosphere is our most popular research and event programme. First premiered at the 2010 Edinburgh International Film Festival, it re-imagines the concept of Atmospheric movie theaters from the 1920s and 30s.

Each expanded screening uses a team of guest artists and creatives to work with technology old and new, multi-sensory interactives and live elements too. Expect some smoke and mirrors, before the bells and whistles.

Alt-w Fund

Alt-w

The application deadline has now passed.

Initiated in Dundee by Scottish Screen, the Alt-w Fund is for practitioners based in Scotland to make and develop new artworks, devices and creative applications that challenge the notions of what new media creativity can be.

The fund supports artists to explore experimental and interactive practice, make use of technology as both medium and message, and recognise the changing role that digital culture has in our society.

Cycle 15 of the fund will commission and curate work for presentation on the 4.5m high LED screen that welcomes every visitor to the refurbished Music Hall in Aberdeen. The deadline for applications is the 17th March 2023 at 6pm.
