Join us on the first Thursday of every month as we throw open our doors for a free twilight gallery experience, alongside talks, live music, film and networking.

At 6.00pm, artist Elpida Hadzi-Vasileva will be giving a talk on international opportunities for artists, citing her recent residency at Luxelakes A4 Museum in Chengdu, China and other key projects since exhibiting at Towner in 2011. Tickets to this event are available here and are free with advance booking recommended.
From 7.30pm in our second floor café-bar, we will have music from Helen Ganya Brown, aka Dog in the Snow (Solo). Based in Brighton, her most recent album is Vanishing Lands (Bella Union), an imposing, haunting and luminous collection of songs in the darker spaces between dream-pop, art-rock and electronica, lifted by euphoric melodies, ravishing vocals and absorbing lyrics. Learning guitar and subsequently Garageband software to construct broader sounds and styles of songwriting, Brown takes inspiration from the brooding, immersive, filmic universes of artists such as Sufjan Stevens, Scott Walker, David Lynch, Clint Mansell and Brian Eno.
In the Towner Cinema, we’re showing Portrait of a Lady on Fire, a sumptuous new masterpiece from Céline Sciamma (Tomboy, Girlhood). 
The bar will remain open until 9.00pm
Free event, everyone welcome.
