Apart from the Contemporary Music Festival, like Bury, Huddersfield doesnt immediately jump to mind as a place where there might be something interesting going on. So I'm pleased to report that the worksetting gallery is an important new development, built around the vision of curator/designer Paul Bradley to create a space that shows established modern masters alongside emerging artists presenting a context of work that hovers between art, fashion, furniture and design, contextualised within an ornate 19th Century shopping arcade.
The opening show is a great opening statement of intent and the future plans suggest this will be a must-see gallery.

"a place for everything and everything in its place" has a great rosta of artists from Lawrence Weiner, Michelangelo Pistoletto, James Turrell and Jaume Plensa to names I didnt (but probably should) know like Laurence Kavanagh, Stefano Bonacci and Vittorio Messina.
