Singh has devised a programme of live events, readings and workshops that present a feminist discourse on the voice in performance, in writing and in the making of things. Beginning with the empty gallery, this programme will ultimately generate a ‘performed or workshopped’ exhibition.
An exhibition of the work of ten artists will be shortlisted from an open submission by Laurence Sillars, BALTIC Chief Curator; Hilary Lloyd, artist and Turner Prize-nominee; Holly Hendry, artist and inaugural recipient of Woon Foundation Prize; and chaired by Christine Borland, Turner Prize-nominated artist and Professor, Northumbria University.
Since 1949, New Contemporaries has organised an annual, open submission, touring exhibition for current and recent graduates. This high-profile platform has become nationally and internationally recognised as a barometer of work emerging from UK art schools. The selected artists will be announced in early summer 2017.
