iBeholder – 11 Apr to 13 June

Want to get to know our galleries better, discover what goes on behind the scenes and try something new?

Visiting an exhibition can sometimes leave you full of questions. How did the artist create this? How did this photographer end up in this situation in the first place? What was their creative process?

Let’s go on an art-venture!

Golden Thread Gallery, The Naughton Gallery, Belfast Exposed and CCA Derry~Londonderry have partnered with thrive and The Audience Agency so we could provide you with all the answers at the edge of your fingertips while getting to know you better. iBeholder is a new platform, available to use for free from your phone. You won’t have to download anything & it won’t use up space on your device. Simply scan the QR code next to the artwork during your next visit and learn some cool facts about what happens behind the scenes of the exhibitions.

Not keen to use your phone while at each gallery but still curious to find out what it’s all about? iBeholder can be accessed at any time, whether it’s during your visit to each gallery, or later from the comfort of your own home. We’ll have handouts with the QR code for you to take home.

We’re looking forward to seeing you from 11th April to the 13th June!
