Echoes of Abstraction II and The Bottomless Pit of Outros

Interactive exhibition marks partnership between Laing Art Gallery and The NewBridge Project

Date/Time: 22 July - 20 August

Venue: Saturday 22 July – Sunday 20 August 2017

The Laing Art Gallery has teamed up with nearby The NewBridge Project to create an interdisciplinary exhibition inspired by the legacy of abstract art. This project is part of the Laing Art Gallery’s contemporary commissioning programme, and has been made possible with the generous support of the Newcastle University Institute for Creative Arts Practice. Opening on Saturday 22 July, the exhibition will bring together newly commissioned work by NewBridge artists Jamie Cook, Adam Goodwin, James Pickering and Paul Trickett, alongside highlights from the Laing Art Gallery’s modern and contemporary painting collection. The exhibition will be on display for four weeks, closing on Sunday 20 August.
