23 September- 8 October

An exhibition of large striking photographs by Lisa Creagh is our first here at Host. These photographs come directly from Hamburg and you’re invited to view them and this new cultural venue – Host – during SAW. Host is as striking as Lisa’s art – a contemporary industrial conversion of an agricultural barn, now home to the young architects who designed it, and an art restorer who was brave enough to commission it. You are welcome to visit us all.
