Alice In Wonderland has long been an inspiration for many; curator Amy Barker has put together an exhibition and is joined by Newcastle-based collaborative duo ScartVideo who are the latest to draw on the rich text as they premiere a live performance of their new work at Laing Art Gallery, Newcastle on Thursday 16th June.

There’s a chance to tour the new exhibition and even create your own Mad Hatter headwear to don for the evening, and explore the psychedelic side of the looking glass by getting lost in inky Rorschach tests. The culmination of the festivities features ScartVideo’s performance of the new video sculpture they’ve put together entitled Enchanting Alice, which combines existing Alice films and crafts unexpected fusions and sensory distortions. It’s also a bonus chance to celebrate ScartVideo’s 10th anniversary, so grab a drink from the bar, get creative and get hands on, explore the exhibition, and get a little bit lost in Wonderland.

Ink & Drink – Alice In Wonderland is at Laing Art Gallery, Newcastle on Thursday 16th June.
