Established in 1997, Vane operates a gallery space, as well as a flexible workspace for artists to develop new work. Vane is based within the Orbis building, a community of creative organisations in Newcastle city centre.
Vane represents a group of critically engaged artists from the North East of England, across the UK, Europe and the USA through projects at the gallery and elsewhere. The gallery exhibition programme also provides a platform for the work of invited artists at all career stages, often working in partnership with other regional, national, and international galleries, festivals and guest curators, including hosting projects developed by artists themselves. These are accompanied by a series of talks, performances, workshops and other events.
Beyond the gallery, Vane has presented projects across the UK and internationally, including in Denmark, Germany, Italy, Lithuania, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the USA.
The gallery directors are Paul Stone and Christopher Yeats.
