In the dramatic splendour of the Assembly Room, internationally renowned artist, Susie MacMurray, showcased a range of her artworks as well as a specially-commissioned site-specific installation.

With a reputation for poetic interventions in historic spaces, MacMurray’s large scale piece, Masquerade, took inspiration from the history of St Albans' Georgian Town Hall and raised questions about the relationship between place and people.

Originally used for balls, galas and concerts, the Assembly Room has been fully restored to its former glory, meaning visitors can admire the stunning Georgian architecture, ornate chandeliers and lustrous gold leaf.

With its double height ceiling and large windows which flood the space with light, this breath-taking room is perfect for hosting immersive, large-scale artworks such as MacMurray's.

In partnership with UH Arts, the University of Hertfordshire’s arts and cultural programme.
