CORONAVIRUS NOTICE: many venues are following the latest Government advice and taking extra precautions or postponing events, to protect the health of their staff and the public. Please check the websites of individual venues for their policies before making any plans to attend.

2021 is the 10th anniversary of Firstsite’s award-winning building – designed by Rafael Viñoly. To celebrate, we are continuing our year of celebration projects and commissions – which kicked off with The Great Big Art Exhibition – with a major exhibition of brand-new works by Michael Landy CBE (b.1963).

Featuring a fascinating archive and an artwork on our magnificent 140-metre curved internal wall, Michael Landy’s Welcome to Essex will explore, celebrate and questions the recent history of his home county and its contemporary portrayal in popular culture.
