The Rain Room at The Barbican

This week we took a trip to the wonderful Barbican. There are always so many things happening there.

At the moment, there is something extra spectacular on offer  –

Random International : Rain Room

4 October 2012 – 3 March 2013

The Curve

 (Free!)

Open daily 11am – 8pm; Thursday until 10pm

***

Random International invites you to experience what it’s like to control the rain. Visitors can choose to simply watch the spectacle or find their way carefully through the rain, putting their trust in the work to the test.

More than the technical virtuosity necessary for its success, the piece relies on a sculptural rigour, with the entire Curve transformed by the monumental proportions of this carefully choreographed downpour and the sound of water.

Random International are known for their distinctive approach to digital-based contemporary art. Their experimental artworks come alive through audience interaction and staged performance.

Random International are represented by Carpenters Workshop Gallery, London and Paris.

We enjoyed it immensely. Such a magical experience. We took a three year old and an 8 month old who also had fun – so there are no age limits … and not an umbrella in sight!!!

Please be advised that the average queue time is approx 2 hours .. We did it in shifts which worked a treat!

let us know if you go

handsome and pretty
