International Print Biennale 2016
We're hosting two exhibitions as part of the 2016 International Print Biennale.
Until 30 October 2016 (historic exhibition)
We're hosting two exhibitions as part of the 2016 International Print Biennale. The Biennale is organised by Northern Print and takes place at venues across the North East from Friday 16 September to Sunday 30 October.
In the Galleria, Norwegian artists (and sisters) Annette and Caroline Kierulf are showing a series of woodcuts they have made individually but resulting from a collaborative project.
Using the scale and format of posters, these woodcuts use one of the oldest forms of printmaking to explore very current concerns around technology, economy, consumerism and the environment.
London-based Rebecca Jewell is an artist printmaker who specialises in working with museum collections (she recently undertook a residency at the British Museum working with the ethnographic collection). Her work displayed in the World Cultures Gallery explores her interest in both the natural world and human cultures and has been inspired by her artistic examination of natural history specimens and museum artefacts.
