ROBOT – touring exhibition
A collection of robots, cyborgs and androids
This exciting exhibition showcases robots, cyborgs and androids in all their guises – from friendly and helpful to sinister and scary.
Visitors will get up close and personal with heroic robots like R2D2, Robby the Robot, and Sonny from Will Smith’s I, Robot. Film fans will recognise the B9 robot from Lost in Space, and the cyborg RoboCop. The dark side is represented by robots such as the ABC robot from Judge Dredd. Around every corner lurks another metallic star – from The Terminator to Scooter.
It’s not all celebrity robots. Where are the household robots promised to us by Tomorrow’s World? Right here, you can see the R.A.D. robots 1.0 and 4.0 – personal robots designed to serve drinks and eavesdrop on conversations.
This new exhibition is everything you need for a spectacular, successful, engaging and educational temporary exhibition.

Art Factory – Robot (21 July – 28 August) attracted over 5000 visitors to the Turnpike Gallery this summer, making it one of the most popular exhibitions during the last decade. This family-friendly show was accompanied by a variety of drop-in activiities devised by the gallery, and in addition, over 700 adults and children participated in artist-led workshops. The majority of visitors to the gallery were from Leigh, Hindley, Tyldesley and Atherton. Partly as a result of a feature on BBC Radio Manchester, visitors also came from Oldham, Bury, Rochdale, St Helens and Manchester. Robot attracted a wide variety of people including teenagers and toddlers, young families and older adults, disabled people and community groups.
Selected comments included: “Today was really good and different. thank you” “I loved making my own robot.” “It’s totally awesome!” “Fabulous! We’re visiting from the USA and we loved the exhibition and robot craft.” “Fabulous idea for the kids.”
