Yorkshire Sculpture Park unveils a vivid and interactive new exhibition this weekend, Occasional Geometries, to celebrate its 40th birthday.

Curated by Bangladeshi-born artist Rana Begum, YSP showcases the sights and sounds of the Caribbean, mindful relaxation and silent disco dancing for A Weekend of Wonderful Things.

From dawn to dusk visitors can encounter a range of special events, including the breathtaking sunset or sunrise in the unique James Turrell Deer Shelter Skyspace and carnival sights and sounds with steel pan music and vibrant performances.

The weekend’s events also includes a secret silent disco, stargazing, family sculpture workshops, meditation and much more.
