A Special Visitor

We were excited to welcome Darth Fisher to The Royal Exchange in his UK debut appearance.

An installation by Dutch artist Streetart Frankey, the piece depicts the famous movie villain Darth Vader — and his iconic red lightsaber — originally created for the anniversary edition of the Amsterdam Light Festival in 2021. The Royal Exchange, a quite different setting to the world of Star Wars, provided an interesting contrast between the past and the future.

To celebrate we hosted a series of competitions during the period. ⁠To kick off this competition spree, we teamed up with Red Eight Gallery to give you the chance to win a personally signed William Fortescue coffee table book PLUS a signed print. The prize was won by @londondaysout with this fabulous reel. Stay tuned for more competitions appearing on our social channels!
