HOUSE at The Hyper-Lab, a new space above the HMV Empire Coventry is a group exhibition that has a particularly strong connection to the Biennial’s Home and Other Habitats HYPER-PATH, with artists exploring our increasingly complex relationships with the places that we live and dwell in. 

Several artists who are exhibiting here are also embedded in the Biennial’s other HYPER-PATHS, responding to the city’s relationship to House music, the venue’s post-industrial aesthetic, it’s cinematic history and the role that the building is hoped to have in the redevelopment of City Centre South. 

The exhibition brings together newly commissioned projects and existing artworks, creating an opportunity to look back at what has made Coventry and the surrounding area so innovative and creative.

Opening times:

The Hyper-Lab

11am-6pm, Thursday - Saturday.

Closed: 19 December - 5 January (inclusive)
