Climb to the Gallery's highest level and come across works suspended between inactivity and activity. Explore ideas of 'action' through the work of sculpture, performance and installation artists, such as Alicia Frankovich, Jim Allen, Daniel Malone and Simon Denny.
Drawn from the collection of the Chartwell Trust, Made Active is full of potential: the potential for everyday objects to be art, for artists to activate our surroundings and for you - the viewer - to be the catalyst that creates meaning or response.
