The Newcastle University Fine Art BA Degree Show brings together the work of over fifty young artists at the culmination of four-year study on the BA in Fine Art. The exhibition displays a diverse set of practices and media including painting, new media, film, video, sculpture, photography, print, sound, performance and installation.

The Newcastle Show will take place in the Fine Art Department of Newcastle University and nearby in the Great North Museum: Hancock from Saturday 3rd June to Saturday 17th June with a Preview from 6pm on Friday 2nd June. The exhibition will then transfer to London where it will be exhibited in the Hoxton Arches from the Wednesday 22ND June to Monday 26th June with a Preview from 7pm on Friday 23rd June.

Newcastle University is the highest ranked university in the UK for Art & Design (The Sunday Times 2017 University Guide) Newcastle’s diverse and lively arts scene goes hand in hand with the University’s long and distinguished history in the practice of Fine Art. Many distinguished artists have been associated with Newcastle, either as students or as teachers, and include, for example, Lawrence Gowing, Richard Hamilton, Victor Pasmore, Roy Ascott, Sean Scully and Susan Hiller. The department was a key player in the radical developments in art education that took place in the UK, and which led to the development of the course known as Basic Design. The department also houses the Hatton Gallery, currently undergoing re-development to provide a new home for works including one of the most iconic artworks of the twentieth century – the Elterwater ‘Merzbarn’, the final work of the German Dadaist Kurt Schwitters.

Still-ness in Motion, the latest series of work by Nicholas Peter Bartlett, presents us with the concept of stopping any moment of time and observing the diversiform of paths created in choice.

In his work, Nicholas propositions a different understanding of our reality; investigating the individual moments we string together to create our environments. Each piece in the collection captures a paused fragment of time which exposes the infinite possibilities ahead.

“Supposing we are actually existing in a completely different way to common belief. One where swirling sands of space-time convert moments into multi-dimensional spaces of our own creation; further interpreted back to us as our own reality.”

Creating the work in his new East London atelier, Studio 88, this curation is a neoteric addition to the Studio 88 catalogue.

A somewhat heterogenous collection of work, brings together paintings, photography and a centrepiece sculpture exhibited in a space disparate to any other.

Save the date.

Nicholas is a conceptual artist with the ability to see his wildest ideas through to reality. Continuously offering an intrinsically perceptive and playful view of the world. His paintings and photography serve to show his thoughtful contemplation that then makes way for the combustion of energy thrown into his set design. Recent client list includes: Kopparberg, The Northface, Cadbury, Secret Garden Party, Google, Glastonbury Festivals.

Bespoke exhibition and event productions.

Installation and conceptual artists Lee Baker, Catherine Borowski and Olivia Hegarty present You Get What You’re Given, a group exhibition of new work opening at Hoxton Arches on 17 November 2016 and running for three days.
The show’s title references a Beckettian theme of mortality and the work offers a bleak, tragicomic outlook on human existence. With each artist boldly interpreting the space and bringing intensely personal stories to the viewer, themes of aloneness and the doomed desire to successfully connect with other human beings are expressed.

Catherine Borowski’s work relates to her upbringing in a London council flat and the recent death of her mother, a devout Muslim, on a pilgrimage to Mecca. Borowski describes an empty, liminal place with staircase spindles. Familiar and yet out of context, profoundly strange and new.

Referencing the Japanese concept of mono no aware or ‘pathos of things’, Lee Baker’s paintings are exquisite and delicate. Where the memento mori in Western art reminds us of our mortality, the symbol of a flower in Japanese art specifically highlights the sad beauty of the temporal nature of living things. Baker’s paintings, dislocate the dying flower from context, symbolically locating the moment where deterioration begins.
Olivia Hegarty creates themes around migration and movement. For this show Hegarty installs delicate and fragile porcelainesque forms that speak of human commonalities.
Acclaimed visual artists, each of the three contributors also have hugely successful careers in the worlds of production and design and collaborate in this group show for the first time.

You Get What You’re Given runs from 17 November 2016 to 20 November 2016 at Hoxton Arches.

About the artists:

Catherine Borowski is an artist and urban placemaker. Her work since finishing her degree at Nottingham University has taken inspiration from the notion of the non-place, such as an installation in the open plan offices of the Sunday Mirror and siting a tarmac’d bench in the carpark of an industrial estate on the outskirts of Nottingham. She is founder and director of Produce UK.
Lee Baker is an artist and music producer. He has exhibited his paintings in London, New York, Dallas and San Francisco. In 1993 he went on to create a variety of site-specific installations in the North East and Scotland, notably a series of commissioned works at the Newcastle Museum of Science and Engineering. He has worked as a scenic artist and prop maker in West End theatres. Since 2002 his work has drawn on inspiration from travel and study of Japanese culture, exploring a deeper understanding of the theories, histories and ideologies behind Japanese creativity.
Olivia Hegarty is an artist and menswear designer. Having studied History of Art and Philosophy in Dublin, she has since pursued a London-based design career with projects around Europe. Her textile-based installations and costume collaborations have been included in shows at the Royal College of Art, Amnuden Da, The Serpentine Gallery, Royal Ballet and the ICA. She is founding member of clothing/art-collective The Grantchester Tailors Guild who have shown at Whitechapel Gallery.

"IT'S NOT ABOUT THE LAND" Photography Exhibition by Melissa Magnuson.

Melissa Magnuson first solo exhibition to showcase landscape, power and the
San Carlos Apache community
Opening on the First Thursday - East London night, it’s not about the land is Melissa Magnuson’s first solo
exhibition. This work comprises large format photography, in situ installation that includes remnants of
the landscape and video installation to explore the relationship of a Native American community with the
land, as well as her own position as an outsider. The London based American born artist presents a facet
of her recurring themes which include social identity constructs and complexities within landscape and
power. She considers landscape not as an object, but a dynamic process that entrenches power relations
and forms social identities.
A critical component of her work method is the collaborative aspect of it; the integration of various
players in the dialogue. In this particular context, she is reflecting on traces left behind three generations
after the attempted cultural genocide of the Apache tribe by the US Government. The impact of post
colonialism is explored through the activism, tribal rituals and day to day existence of people living on the
“rez” in San Carlos Arizona.
The work invites the viewer to consider the geopolitical realities of the San Carlos Apache community,
while renegotiating the contradictory myths and what might be called history of the people, landscape
and politics without a particular agenda. The challenge is to allow the complexity of the material shape a
point of view.
