Today marks two weeks to go until the opening of Middlesbrough Art weekender and my return to exhibiting in Middlesbrough. From the 19th – 21st May work of International and Regional Artists will be shown across forty locations alongside public events and workshops.
Alongside work in pop-up galleries there will also be shows opening in Mima, House of Blah Blah, Felix the Gallery, Platform A and Teesside University’s Degree Show.
Linking all of these shows is an art trail along Albert Road, which is where my work will be shown.
You may recognise this piece from an earlier installation piece (as shown in Manchester and Swansea). Due to space constraints the whole piece cannot be shown.
I am thrilled to be showing work in my old stomping ground after a four year absence alongside some incredible artists.
