Tuesday Studio, Darryl Spencer, Louise Newham, Project Art Works. 2012.
Project Art Works opens Residential at Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art as part of Explorers.
23rd September 2023 – 25th February 2024
Project Art Works has an archive of over five thousand physical works accumulated over 25 years, that embody a visible trace of people who are often hidden in the world. These are represented at Baltic by an exhibition of large-scale paintings in the Ground Floor gallery.
A new film of our studios, I’ve Got Ideas, Don’t You Worry, sits within the exhibition revealing the subtle and expansive nature of speaking and non-speaking creativity and communication.
Following awareness raising and relationship building in the North East of England, the exhibition includes a programme of workshops for local people, families and caregivers. A studio installation next to the main space will host a series of collaborative events that bring partners and collaborators, audiences and artists together in creative production.
Residential forms part of Explorers, a national programme of art and conversation generating productive and creative collaborations between cultural organisations artists and paid and unpaid
caregivers. Explorers aims to increase visibility and representation of neurominorities in society, art and culture.
Explorers is supported by Arts Council England and Paul Hamlyn Foundation.
This exhibition is dedicated to Robbie Gordon and Edward Purdey.
