You Shall Know Our Velocity is a group exhibition by sixteen artists, all of whom have chosen to live and work in the north east of England.
Having just hosted British Art Show 6, the exhibition is a timely snapshot of the art on BALTIC’s doorstep. From those who have exhibited internationally, to recent graduates, this dynamic exhibition celebrates the talent of artists based in one of the most vibrant places for contemporary art in the UK. Featured artists were chosen by the BALTIC curatorial team after visiting studios and art spaces across the region during September and October last year. The selection includes practitioners aged 25 to 50, based in a variety of areas: from Gateshead to Allenheads, Saltburn to South Shields.
The exhibition brings together a diverse range of works from paintings made by a mechanical machine, to work developed from the history of rave culture in the Lake District, a docu-drama about nuclear oblivion in Sheffield, to erotic animations. Images recognisable to north east visitors will include Fiona Crisp’s haunting photograph from the empty stage of Newcastle’s Theatre Royal and Sky, a short film by Alan Smith, combining footage of the artist moving around his rural environment of Allenheads. Exhibits spill beyond the gallery with video works in the café and entrance spaces on the Ground Floor.
The title for the exhibition is taken from Dave Egger’s 2003 novel of the same name.
