New Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art – opening and preview
Following a major capital redevelopment project, the Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art is reopening at the National Glass Centre, part of the University of Sunderland. The Gallery celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2018, having been one of the very first contemporary art galleries in Britain. It has provided major international figures with their first UK exhibitions, including Harun Farocki (Germany) and Cory Arcangel (USA) and exhibited 14 Turner Prize nominees
The preview of Fiona Crisp’s ‘Material Sight’ exhibition is taking place on Friday 23rd March 6.00-8.00pm. Fiona explores how we might encounter spaces where the frontiers of knowledge are being expanded. Material Sight is a new large-scale commission that uses photography, moving image and sound to approach the material environments where experiences that challenge the limits of our imagination are carried out.
