Current Exhibitions

This Will Not Happen Without You
From the collective archive of The Basement Group, Projects UK and Locus+
(1977-2006)
10th February – 31st March 2007

This Will Not Happen Without You revisits some of the most compelling art projects, performances and events in Britain over the last thirty years.

The exhibition begins by tracing the activities of The Basement Group (1979-1984). A collective of six artists focusing on performance and time-based work, the group later evolved into Projects UK (1984 to 1992), the UK’s first office-based organisation, working with artists to develop site-specific events and temporary works. Later expanded by Locus+ (1993- ), who have since commissioned and published a wide spectrum of innovative, socially engaged, collaborative visual arts projects, across the country and beyond.


Forthcoming Exhibitions

Aggregate
Jamie Shovlin
7th April - 26th May 2007

Aggregate is a touring exhibition by Jamie Shovlin, a contemporary visual artist with a growing reputation for innovative and unique work. Aggregate has toured to three additional venues and includes four new commissions by the artist, all of which will be displayed at the Hatton Gallery in a culmination of the project.

Russian Futurism 23rd June – 18th August 2007
Jordan Baseman 15th Sept – 11th November

The gallery annually showcases new work by final year students on the Newcastle University’s Fine Art degree courses.



Previous Exhibitions

Locus+ (1993-present) evolved from The Basement Group (1979-1983) and Projects UK (1984-1992), each acting as a catalyst for radical new work. This pioneering approach has profoundly influenced today’s landscape of art practice and its role in the public realm.

Beginning as a collective of six artists, programming twice weekly events in a basement in Newcastle upon Tyne, The Basement Group was both progressive and ambitious for its time. The organisation programmed performance, video art, installation, experimental film and sound works. Documentation from this period features early performances by leading practitioners in the UK and Europe, including Bruce McLean, Stuart Brisley, Mona Hatoum, Alistair MacLennan and Nan Hoover.

After several years of activity the organisation evolved into Projects UK, the first office-based visual arts organisation in the UK working with artists to devel... [ Read all ]
