Come and explore the studios, and learn more about the work of artists Pipilotti Rist and Björn and Oddur Roth, who have recently been in residence at the Maltings.
Guests are welcome anytime between 6 and 9 pm – we’ll be serving delicious soup, hot dogs, mulled wine and warm spiced apple juice from Roth Bar & Grill.
The following films will be screened throughout the evening:
