Catrin Huber

  • Principle Investigator

Catrin Huber, is an artist and Senior Lecturer at Newcastle University who investigates the site-responsiveness of painting, and the interrelationship of art, architecture and life.  

An Abbey Fellow at the British School at Rome (2008), she was struck by the freshness and relevance of Roman wall painting for contemporary fine art practice. This led to site-responsive interventions at a number of institutions (e.g. Hatton Gallery, Newcastle, 2013; Pitzhangor Manor, London, 2012; the British School at Rome, 2011), and subsequently to the development of Expanded Interiors, which brings contemporary practice to Roman houses at Pompeii and Herculaneum.
