A Continuing Process
Platform is a new initiative selected from an open call for proposals from Newcastle University staff and early career researchers for exhibitions during specific periods in the Hatton exhibition calendar.
This year artist and practice-led PhD researcher Harriet Sutcliffe presents A Continuing Process. Her work investigates the pioneering teaching methods of the ‘Basic Course’ devised and developed by artists Richard Hamilton and Victor Pasmore in the 50s and 60s at King’s College, Durham University (now Newcastle University). Drawing inspiration from the archive, the Hatton’s progressive culture of display and first hand accounts, this exhibition will explore the Basic Course and its relevance to contemporary fine art practice.

Women and Power, Switched on! Shining a light on female Innovation, Cragside, The National Trust
As part of a collaborative project between The National Trust and Newcastle University, Women and Power, Kate Stobbart and I have worked together to create The Great Cragside Cover-up. This piece highlights the thousands of anonymous women who worked both at the Elswick Works and Cragside over the last one hundred years through creating a site-specific installation in the formal gardens of over 4000 sunflowers.
