British artist Ryan Gander picked the works from the Arts Council’s 8,000-piece collection to be shown alongside by a new commission by himself at the West Bretton park’s Longside Gallery.

For Night in the Museum, Gander presents a new work by himself, alongside pieces by more than 30 artists including Castleford’s Henry Moore.

Head of the Arts Council Collection, Jill Constantine, said Gander had deployed an “imaginative approach” to curate a “visually stunning” show.

The exhibition opens on July 16 and runs until October 16.
