Foam party

Anyone wanting a sneak peek at Peter Robinson's upcoming and wonderfully ambitious installation at the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery should head to the gallery neighbourhood today, where thousands of little polystyrene foam spheres offer some slight indication of what's in store.

We were trying to recall what the only other full-gallery exhibition at the GBAG was, and decided on Leon Narby's opening installation back in 1970, though in an apple against apple world et al.'s abnormal mass delusions occupied the same original gallery space.

I also have a sneaking suspicion that the epic directorial swansong Mediarena covered both the entire old and new gallery spaces.

Either way, exciting times.
