House tour with Rene Porteous

Wednesday 25 May, 1.00pm - 2.00pm

The month of May sees a host of events across the town as part of Middlesbrough’s Local History Month, a celebration of the town’s fascinating culture and heritage.  Find out more.

As part of the activities, we are offering special insight into the work and lives of Glynn and Rene Porteous. Rene will give personal tours of the home she shared with her late husband, local artist Glynn Porteous (1935 – 2003), an artwork in its own right.

Glynn and Rene’s lives have been dedicated to art making. Rene, one of mima’s gallery assistants, is an important and inspiring figure for a younger generation of practitioners. She challenges people to live artfully.

To sign up please email mima@tees.ac.uk with a couple of lines about why you wish to visit the Porteous’ home and we will follow up with information about where to meet. Places are extremely limited.
