Open House London (an annual event, when buildings throughout London open their doors to the public), takes place on Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 September. The GAC is taking part and invites you on a tour of the building, just off Tottenham Court Road.

This year's display, entitled 'Dark Vision', looks at how artists have explored difficult ideas and to what extent these are represented in the Collection. Themes include: social and political comment, war and violence, inhabitants of the night, and ambiguity and menace.
