Yesterday/Today/Tomorrow at Vane


  • to

A Foul and Awesome Display at Vane

Harris’s paintings depicting nuclear bomb tests are vast and confrontational, depicting moments of manufactured violence that radically disrupt the landscape. In Charlie (2017) each square inch of linen represents 4 tons of TNT – which in turn is the unit of measurement that denotes the yield of the explosion.

Make Print Great Again at Vane

Make Print Great Again

  • to

‘Make Print Great Again’ brings together eight artists based in the North East of England, each of whom has an individual approach to the nature, techniques and possibilities of printmaking and its position within contemporary art. The exhibition has been curated by Nick Christie and Johnnyx.

Electric Blue at Vane

  • to

Nick Christie uses a wide range of printmaking techniques in order to create a visual dialogue between inner curiosity and the physical act of making. Themes of connectivity and the body are explored through an intuitive, expressive mark making drawing style. The nature of electricity is played with through using printmaking methods in which it is inherent.

Souter Point at Vane

Souter Point

Joe McAllister’s work investigates the landscape around South Tyneside in the north east of England, one that from the early 1800s well into the 20th Century was an important part of the Industrial Revolution.

Somewhere In Between at Vane

Somewhere In Between

  • to

Newcastle-based artist Oliver Doe’s exhibition, ‘Somewhere In Between’, questions the way that we see queer people, turning this abstraction on its head in order to proudly demonstrate LGBTQ+ bodies as a defiant site of political and cultural difference. Queer erasure is rendered into boldly coloured minimalist paintings, defiantly present in the space, and yet containing a pervading sense of absence in their reduced forms.

No Whole Truths at Vane

No Whole Truths

  • to

Johannah Latchem’s work addresses themes of law, punishment and power. They intervene in the material culture of the courthouse to establish new rituals. Her art installations are sometimes installed in courtrooms and critique the symbolic materiality of law’s historical artefacts. Latchem creates new legal objects and explores their performative role in courtroom rituals, exposing new ways to convey revised messages to the public.
