Millennium Galleries Sheffield Reviews
Mar 31, 2007
Sheffield isn't exactly effuse with Art Galleries - there's the Graves Gallery inside the Central Library and this one.
The Millennium Gallery is a bright modern structure full of glass a bright white walls. It basically consists of a wide covered walkway that runs from the Winter Gardens before descending down an escalator to the glass covered frontage to the gallery.
On the top level there are four rooms which make up the galleries themselves. The main room is pretty vast with lots of large white walls upon which to display the incumbent artworks. Three other small rooms make up the rest allowing the gallery to host three differing exhibitions at any one time.
When I visited the main display was based on Abstract with installations including some swinging lights, a nest of tables that looked suspiciously like it had come straight from Ikea and some TVs that flashed on and off in time to some sound effects from the film 'The Odd Couple'. Yes - I thought it was all a bit odd as well!
There's no charge to visit the gallery so at least it's a decent effort to bring art to the population of Sheffield but your experience is largely going to be based upon whether you like the sort of art on display when you visit.
