I visited mima on Friday. Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art. The brand new £19million art gallery opened a week or so ago in a blaze of firework goodness.
It’s a truly fantastic building which seems to have taken an age to construct. An imposing block of concrete rising from what was once an overcrowded car park.
So during a chat with Marie (a friend from work) during one of the intervals of the comedy night last Friday (see Die Clatterschenkenfietermaus asap!), we got on to the subject of mima.
“We should definitely go! It looks great.” She said enthusiastically.
