Art: Hepworth to open new gallery

The Hepworth Wakefield celebrates its second birthday with the announcement of a new 600 square metre contemporary art space that will open this later this summer.

The new space is located in an adjacent 19th century mill and continues the culturally-led regeneration of Wakefield Waterfront.

Caddies Wainwright Mill

The space's first exhibition will be Turner Prize-nominated artist, Roger Hiorns who will exhibit his entire body of Youth works for the first time.

The ground floor of Caddies Wainwright Mill, a 19th century former textiles mill on the River Calder, has been transformed into a new contemporary art space to be programmed in parallel to the main gallery.
