We are delighted to show this latest work by Huw Wahl, a Manchester based artist and film-maker, and director of the Herbert Read documentary ‘To Hell With Culture’.

Running Time: 86 minutes

Founded in 1968, Action Space used large inflatable structures to create alternative spaces for art, education and creative play outside of the restrictive gallery arena. This film explores the history of Action Space through the construction of a new inflatable.

“Huw Wahl’s new documentary is a meditative, visually rich portrait of this band of dreamers (…) It conjures up the possibility of a national canon of inflatable culture”
Sukhdev Sandhu, Sight and Sound magazine, September 2016

“Wahl presents a portrait of the project not just as the bizarre and vanished possibility it was, but as a very ordinary family affair, a project of everyday life.”
The Wire magazine, January 2017
