Collaborative project in response to Pasmore opens tonight

A collaborative and interdisciplinary art project between architecture, fine art and music, in response to Victor Pasmore’s An Exhibit, is being launched tonight (Friday 8 May) at 6pm in the Hatton Gallery.

The event will include a lively insight into the exhibition led by Elena Crippa, Curator of Modern and Contemporary British Art at Tate and co-author of a forthcoming book about the exhibitions initiated by Richard Hamilton, Victor Pasmore and Lawrence Alloway in the 1950s. 

There will also be presentations from the Newcastle University staff and students who have created new work in response to an Exhibit, including Project, an installation led by Andrew Fentham, and A Third Exhibita collaborative installation led by architecture tutors Matthew Margetts and Ed Wainwright, longside students from architecture, art and music at Newcastle University, which reimagines the space of the gallery, the relations of light, colour and surface, and the notion of interactivity.

Both have been kindly funded by the Newcastle Institute for Creative Arts Practice

Friday 8th May, 6-8pm. Free, no booking required.

Followed by an informal wine reception supported by the Friends of the Hatton.
