Episode 68 – Illuminating the Self at Vane and Hatton

We’re back after our impromptu break with special guest Ellie, who’s back from China for a small amount of time ad eager to chat about some art! For this episode we went along to Vane Gallery and Hatton Gallery to check out Illuminating the Self, which takes place across both galleries.

“Illuminating the Self is an exhibition of new work by artists Susan Aldworth and Andrew Carnie in response to groundbreaking research led by Newcastle University into developing a new treatment for epilepsy.”

It’s such an interesting exhibition about a super important and fascinating topic, and to see if spread across two galleries is unlike anything we’ve really seen – I can’t recommend it enough!

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

Exhibition runs in Vane until 29th February, and in Hatton until 9th May.

More information here and here. And here’s a link to the CANDO website.

Location: Vane Gallery and Hatton Gallery

Here’s the book Ellie mentioned, The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down by Anne Fadiman.

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!
