ART BEHIND BARS
This month’s highbrow arts destination? Reading Prison, which housed Oscar Wilde during his 1890s incarceration, and closed its gates in 2013. Organised by art funding body Artangel, ‘Inside: Artists and Writers in Reading Prison’ sees the Victorian building’s corridors and cells transformed into museum spaces for new works by leading creatives such as filmmaker Steve Mcqueen and photographer Wolfgang Tillmans. Letters by the likes of Ai Weiwei and Jeanette Winterson can be read or listened to and every Sunday Wilde’s letter De Profundis will be spoken aloud in the prison chapel by a different performer: Ralph Fiennes and Maxine Peake are both on the list. Until 30 October (artangel.org.uk).
