Curated by Jenny Halstead and Linda Saul. An exciting exhibition celebrating the ever-changing skyline of Reading and bidding a fond and final farewell to the last of our so familiar gasometers.

25 invited artists will respond in their own styles and media to this themed show, appropriately exhibited in the Turbine House with its view down the Kennet to that last gasometer!
