WE THE NORTH is excited to host it’s third gallery exhibition, NE → NW, presented and curated by Double Yolk, a collective made up of final year undergraduates from Newcastle University.
NE → NW will be the first of two exhibitions between Newcastle and Liverpool, showcasing work from Double Yolk members alongside current LJMU students and recent graduates. Curated collaboratively, the exhibition will highlight the artistic possibilities of forming relationships with other art schools and communities across the UK. The show will be the result of the decisions made through the collective discussion between the members of Double Yolk and the Liverpool based collaborators, in only the few hours leading up to evening of the opening.
Double Yolk is a collective of Newcastle University Fine art students with the vision of connecting other art students and artists across the UK. Their aim is to start conversations by organising exhibitions, producing a working format that allows artists from two cities to exhibit work alongside one another in both locations.
NE → NW artists will be revealed on the opening night!
WE THE NORTH is a gallery and project space, created as a platform to give final year undergraduate art students from universities in the North, the opportunity to exhibit work outside of their institutional location. Offering up and coming artists the chance to create networks within Liverpool that can be used when they are no longer an undergraduate
