HALFWAY TO SOMEWHERE
A group show by the Collective Studio
The NewBridge Project : Gateshead
Preview: Friday 28 September, 6 – 9pm
Exhibition continues: 29 September – 27 October
Brought together by the opportunity for space to create, people to create with and context to respond to, the Collective Studio provided a malleable, participant-led experience in which the group of artists, creatives, writers and makers could explore the potential of their practice post-higher education in new, open and collaborative ways.
Halfway to Somewhere features work spanning sculpture, installation, video, photography, performance, role-playing games, furniture, and subject matter from topophilia to haunted rockeries.
Following group shows at Goldtapped and 36 Lime Street, this is the third in a series of exhibitions that The Collective Studio have presented together during the last year. It marks the end of their time on the programme and the point at which they take their next steps, as they make way for a new group of participants and a new iteration of the ever-evolving Collective Studio.
Exhibition open 29 September – 27 October 2018
The show is open Wed – Fri, 10am – 6pm
The show will be open on the following weekend dates: Sat 29 & Sun 30 September / Saturday 27 October as part of Gateshead Open Studios.
