To provide a raucous fanfare to the opening of their MY PART OF YOUR HOME exhibition at Shipley Art Gallery in Gateshead, CIRCA Projects present FESTIVAL IS SUDDEN as part of TUSK Festival 2017, a whole festival experience crowbarred into one hour at 3-4pm on Friday 13th October. Performers include: Culver, Deanne Smith and Giles Bailey with further names tba. Entry is free.
MY PART OF YOUR HOME runs from 13-25th October and is an exhibition using the Saltwell Museum Collection at Gateshead’s Shipley Art Gallery, on its centenary year.
The collection holds many objects ‘made in Gateshead’ – and this new exhibition creates a conversation between them and artworks which were also ‘made in Gateshead’.
Giles Bailey & CIRCA Projects will introduce artwork interventions ‘made in Gateshead’ into the exhibition.
Inspired by the diverse and exploratory character of the gallery’s curation, which holds objects as diverse as coal produced in the ground and Primula cheese produced in a factory in Gateshead: ‘My Part of Your Home’ introduces art into the collection and shows the relationships it has with the collection’s objects.
