Hello? Is that the Red Cube gallery?

Sculptor Henry Moore’s former village phone box at Perry Green in Hertfordshire is to re-open as an art gallery – the Red Cube

Sculptor Henry Moore’s former village phone box at Perry Green in Hertfordshire is to re-open as an art gallery – the Red Cube

Of course, it’s not really a cube – the name is a knowing reference to London’s White Cube gallery, currently home to a Damien Hirst exhibition.

The Red Cube, which opens on May 29, is a collaboration between The Henry Moore Foundation and Much Hadham Parish Council. It sits on the village green and is a K6 Jubilee model designed by Giles Gilbert Scott in 1935.

Its first season will feature work from clients of The Drawing Room, part of St Elizabeth’s Centre, a national centre of expertise for people of all ages with epilepsy, associated learning disabilities and other neurological disorders, which also based in Perry Green. Other artworks inside the cabin will be created by visitors, Foundation staff, and former assistants to Moore himself. It will be open daily and admission is free.
