Interruptions is a number of events, workshops and performances that intersects the Holden Gallery's annual programme of exhibitions. Its short-term format enables different methods of working, allowing invited artists to experiment in the large scale gallery space, and encourages collaborative practice across disciplines in a series of one-off events.

All events are free and open to all.
