Statement of Concern from Robin Klassnik, Matts Gallery, London

It is with great concern that I read of the closure of Ormeau Baths
Gallery in Belfast during the week, particularly the immediacy with
which the action was taken, and the apparent short notice given to
staff.

I have worked with Ormeau Baths Gallery in the past and followed the
programme with interest over the years. I absolutely support and
empathise with the Director Hugh Mulholland and his team at this time,
and am most disappointed that the Arts Council of Northern Ireland have
withdrawn their funding from such an important contemporary art venue.

Yours sincerely


Robin Klassnik
