Showcase: Designs for a Touring Pavilion at the Laing Art Gallery
Catrin Huber, Toby Paterson, and duo Harriet Sutcliffe & Jack Mutton.
Until 23 October 2016 (historic exhibition)
Dozens of artists submitted proposals to an open call in spring 2016 to develop designs for a roaming pavilion (temporary architectural structure) inspired by the Hatton Gallery's collection.
This exhibition features the work of Catrin Huber, Toby Paterson, and duo Harriet Sutcliffe & Jack Mutton.
Visitors are invited to comment on the proposals and an independent panel of judges will decide which artist will go on to complete the pavilion which will tour around Newcastle and Gateshead in spring/summer 2017.
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.
