Shortlisted Artists Announcement
The Hatton Gallery is delighted to announce the artists shortlisted for the exciting opportunity to create a touring pavilion inspired by the Hatton.
From the dozens of artists who submitted proposals to an open call in spring 2016, Catrin Huber, Toby Paterson, and duo Harriet Sutcliffe & Jack Mutton have been selected to develop designs for a roaming pavilion (temporary architectural structure) which will tour around Newcastle and Gateshead in spring/summer 2017.
The proposals will be unveiled at the exhibition Showcase: Designs for a Touring Pavilion, which opens at the Laing Art Gallery later this month.
Showcase: Designs for a Touring Pavilion is part of the offsite programme which aims to maintain the profile of the Hatton Gallery whilst it is closed for a £3.8million refurbishment, which has been funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
Showcase: Designs for a Touring Pavilion has been supported by money raised through Arts Council England’s Catalyst Arts: capacity building and match funding scheme and the Heritage Lottery Fund.
The exhibition is on show at the Laing Art Gallery until October 2016.
