Coming this summer - new MCAHE exhibition 'Out of Place'

In 2018 MCAHE commissioned five new site-specific contemporary artworks for heritage sites in North East England. Our forthcoming exhibition ‘Out of Place’, opening in June, re-presents these artworks within the new context of the Hatton Gallery, prompting a questioning of how the meaning and experience of art changes when it is relocated from its original site.  
The exhibition will feature sound works, installation, painting and sculpture by MCAHE artists Susan Philipsz, Matt Stokes, Fiona Curran, Andrew Burton, Marcus Coates and Mark Fairnington. Presented in the Hatton, the MCAHE works are exhibited in relation to Kurt Schwitters’ Merzbarn, a key example of a site-specific artwork that is relocated from its original context. 
Exhibition dates: 29 June – 10 August 2019
Visit the Hatton Gallery for details of opening times.
