Kielder Skyspace guided visits 2018 Join Kielder Curator Peter Sharpe for a guided visit to experience a brand new light show in this unusual artwork by internationally renowned American artist James Turrell.

Visit dates 11th October departing 5.25pm from Kielder Waterside 20th October departing 5.15pm from Kielder Waterside

The visit will include transport to the Skyspace from Kielder Waterside and a talk by Curator Peter Sharpe on the artist’s work, the inspiration behind the piece and how the lighting experience has been updated, as well as the opportunity to experience the new lighting programme in full.

The tour will take approximately 2 hours (including travel). There is no charge, but places are limited, so advance booking is essential on 0845 155 0236 or by emailing info@visitkielder.com

At this time of the year it can already be cold so come prepared with warm clothing; bringing a cushion to sit on is also a good idea! In the Skyspace the artist manipulates our normal perceptions of light and space.

In daylight hours this chamber is a rugged contemplative space that presents the ever-changing sky as a moving picture for visitor's enjoyment and meditation. As the light conditions change at dusk, hidden lights illuminate the upper part of the chamber creating an extremely unusual display of colour that lasts just over an hour.
