Check out the new digital art gallery in the heart of Coventry

The Reel Store is a brand-new visitor attraction suitable for the whole family, based in the old reel store at the former home of the Coventry Evening Telegraph newspaper. A space that was once the home of the city’s many stories has now been transformed into an immersive digital gallery and is welcoming visitors from across the country.

What’s on

Now open is Machine Memoirs: Space by internationally acclaimed artist Refik Anadol. Two million images of the deepest regions of outer space, captured by NASA and the International Space Station, have been transformed through AI into an immersive cinematic experience of rich and futuristic visuals accompanied by 3D audio.

In 2021 alone work has been exhibited at Art Basel Miami Beach, COP26 in Glasgow, ARTECHOUSE in New York, Abu Dhabi, China, Japan and South Korea, as well as major cities across Europe including Istanbul, Milan and Venice.
