‘No Frost at Night’ will be curated by Sid White-Jones during his time on the Babylon Young Curators programme; a year-long professional development programme for young people age 18 - 25.

“The exhibition will present audiences with ideas on how archival materials can be utilised within the context of contemporary art. Betty’s weather diaries are a wonderfully eclectic source of inspiration, each a unique time-capsule in its own right. We look forward to sharing these historical records and the contemporary artworks inspired by them with visitors later this year.”

- Sid White-Jones.

Babylon Gallery is open Tuesday to Sunday, 12pm to 4pm.
