This week the girls popped along to the Hatton to check out one of their new exhibitions, Origins and Endings, by artist Marriane Wilde and composer Mark Carroll, which does one of our favourite things and combines science and art.
“The exhibition will highlight partnerships that have culminated in creative works in response to the academic research carried out by PEALS (Policy, Ethics & Life Sciences Research Centre), and ranges across the broad themes of being human.”
For this week’s episode Alice and Amy popped back along to the Tyneside Cinema to check out the most recent event in the Projections programme: Visions of Collisions by FilmBee. FilmBee is a collective based in the North East who experiment with all things film: shooting it, developing it, screening it and creating fab events with it, like this one! This was a weird and wonderful collaboration of ideas and source material, and we learned about the concept of agonism and how that can be thought of in the cinema space.
This weeks episode is all about when the girls checked out day 3 of this years amazing Berwick Film and Media Arts Festival up in Berwick-upon-Tweed. As you might recall we checked out the opening day of the festival last year, and the high expectations we got from the festival this year were met in full! We saw some amazing films, some confusing ones, some cool art, and we caught up with some old friends. If this sounds like your cup of tea then give the episode a listen!
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!
For this week’s episode the girls popped back along to the Tyneside Cinema to check out the most recent event in the Projections programme: Susie Green & Simon Bayliss: Artists’ Music Videos. They had a fantastic evening watching an eclectic mix of music videos and true experimentations of what a music video could be.
For this week’s episode the wonderful Alison Merritt Smith, director of The Holy Biscuit here in Newcastle, came into the studio to have a chat about The Holy Biscuit and it’s current transition and re-brand into Shieldfield Art Works. We talked about the launch party, the current exhibition, and the effect of the rise of student accommodation has on the community.
For this week’s episode Rosie takes a moment to remember Ewan Brown, and the girls have a chat about their recent visit to Vane Gallery to check out ‘Worth It’, a fab exhibition that explored textiles, fashion, and what it means to be a women in Tyneside today. (Part of ‘Festival of Women’, from the Women of Tyneside project).
Happy Saturday everyone! This episode is coming a little late in the day but it’s worth the wait because we think it’s a good one! For this one we went along to Abject Gallery to check out the preview of Peter McArdle’s exhibition ‘Stories from the Big Flat Now‘. It’s a very surreal and wide ranging exhibition that provoked a whole bunch of conversation from us.
For this episode, the girls popped down to Middlesbrough to have a chat with Laura Sillars, Director of the Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art (Mima), all about one of their current exhibitions ‘Liquid Crystal Display‘. This exhibition looks at crystals in a range of different forms, namely ‘liquid’, and the different contexts in which we as human beings interact with them on a daily basis. It was awesome having a chat with Laura and great to get some further insight into the show and how it was put together.
