A FIRSTSITE exhibition has been so popular it is being extended for more than two months.

The Bruce McLean exhibition was meant to run until September 21, but the gallery has decided to extend it until November 30.

The exhibition, which features work from 1965 to the present, includes sculpture, painting, photography, drawings, ceramics and film.

It is the first to use Firstsite’s seven galleries.

Matthew Rowe, director at the High Street gallery, said: “This exhibition is a coup for Firstsite and Colchester, with many envious visitors travelling from London and further afield to see it.

“It is certainly the most successful use of the various and unusual spaces in our building to date and I would urge critics of Firstsite to come in and see this major exhibition and how it fully activates the architecture.”

Another exhibition was set to be unveiled from next month, but it has been postponed until December.

The free exhibition is open Tuesday to Sunday, 10am to 5pm.
