Field Trip 4 – TENT and Summer in Rotterdam

During our summer break we went over to Rotterdam for a little hollie, and when we were there we saw a multitude of art and wanted to talk about some of it. TENT Rotterdam is a really cool gallery space in the centre of Rotterdam (inside a different contemporary art gallery), and the exhibition we saw ‘No You Won’t Be Naming No Buildings After Me‘ is an interesting look at how places and things can get commemorated. The exhibition actually closes tomorrow (22nd September), so if you’re in Rotterdam go check it out!

Minisode 7 – Some Summer Honourable Mentions

On our summer break we still went out to see some cool art around the North East and whilst most (if not all) of the stuff we went to go see has finished now, we think they deserve a mention. So this episode is a short but sweet little recap of some of the cool stuff we saw this summer.

Episode 53 – A Foul and Awesome Display by Kirsty Harris

We’re back from our summer break and we’ve got a fantastic exhibition to get started up again with! ‘A Foul and Awesome Display‘ by Kirsty Harris is showing at Vane Gallery at the moment and it’s all about nuclear bombs, explosions, and testing. It’s such an interesting and kind of morbid topic and it’s explored in some very interesting ways. You can catch the show until the 28th September so if you can we’d really recommend it!

Don’t forget you can have a listen to this episode and all of our other ones on SpotifyiTunesGoogle, and Soundcloud!

Exhibition runs until the 28th September 2019.

Location: Vane

Opening Hours: Wednesday – Saturday, 12:00-17:00

Field Trip 3 – Edinburgh And The Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art

For this week’s episode Alice and Amy finally went on their ‘sister trip’ up to Edinburgh, where they checked out the ‘Beyond Realism | Dada and Surrealism‘ exhibition at The National Scottish Museum Of Modern Art. We do love a bit of surrealism and it was great finding some familliar artists work and learning about some new ones (well, new to us because surrealism is an old movement).

Exhibition runs until 25th October 2020.

Here’s some more information about the exhibition.

Location: The National Scottish Museum Of Modern Art
