Museums at Nightclub - Make Mistakes at the University of Misunderstanding, with artist Bob & Roberta Smith

Saturday 19th May 2012

The Ken Ardley Playboys, The Guillotines DJ & Born Bad DJ

At Towner

Doors 7:30 pm

Price £8 adv. /£6 concession

Towner is excited to have won iconic signmaker and installation artist Bob & Roberta Smith for our Museums At Night event.

As darkness falls the gallery will transform into the first ever Museums at Nightclub – featuring Smith’s Resonance FM radio show, live bands, DJ and the University of Misunderstanding – where you, the audience, become the students!

With the curriculum set by Bob & Roberta Smith, take part in some arty and irreverent activities to earn stamps on your certificate, and collect them all to graduate…

Bring along your best piece of dodgy art for our exhibition – perhaps that GCSE piece that still lingers in the back of your cupboard? – the winners will be judged by Smith.

And if you have a brass instrument, bring it with you to join the Biggest Brass Sound Orchestra!

Dress for After Dark…

Are you ready to become a student at the University of Misunderstanding?


1. Have you looked out for your best piece of ‘dodgy art’ for our Dodgy Art Exhibition? Like the anti-Turner Prize, we celebrate the best of uncelebrated art in all it’s forms – from your old GCSE coursework, to that sculpture of beer mats you made in the pub! Art will go on display in our Collection Gallery before the winner is picked by Bob & Roberta Smith (judging takes place at 9:45pm).

2. Have you polished your trombone? – don’t forget your brass instrument to take part in our Biggest Brass Sound Orchestra! (we’ll provide a safe storage space for the rest of the evening).

3. Have you got your outfit sorted? It’s Museums at Night, so dress for After Dark

We look forward to welcoming you on campus!
