Localism exhibition rehang


4 December 2015

Localism has been open for almost two months now and we have been thrilled by the public’s positive response so far. Next week sees a rehang of parts of the display to make way for exciting new collections and one off pieces.

On Monday, the self-curated display case in the ground floor gallery will be rehung with pieces from Richey Henderson’s, Skin Privilege. In this new exhibition, Richey extends themes raised in his recent installation Displaced, by exploring the role of ethnicity within the context of racial classification and cultural assimilation. Using a series of painted portraits and personal artefacts which explore the artist’s relationship with his grandfather, father and son, Skin Privilege examines the experiences of four generations of Caribbean descendants living in Middlesbrough today.

Other new work to be featured in the Localism exhibition includes pieces from local artist, Gill Ord, embroidery pieces by Margaret Smith, and glass fused artwork from Karin Walland.

Come and visit the updated display from Tuesday 8 December.
