ELLIE'S PIECE AIMED TO CREATE A PARTY ATMOSPHERE WHILST ALSO CELEBRATING THE 254 EXHIBITIONS WHICH HAD TAKEN PLACE AT THE GALLERY OVER ITS LIFETIME. FOR THIS SHE COMPILED THE ANGEL ROW JUKEBOX - A REPRODUCTION DOME-TOPPED WURLITZER CONTAINING ALL THE UK #1 HITS WHICH COINCIDED WITH THE OPENING OF EACH OF THESE EXHIBITIONS.
