Newcastle Upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear
In Cahoots is a residency designed to prompt critical reflection of recent graduates’ practices and explore the potential for new ideas to be created through collaboration. For just over a week, artists will be paired with a collaborator to make new work cumulating in an open studios event, which will be held across the 16th and 17th of June at Hoult’s Yard. Curated by Kayt Hughes and Alicia Carroll, the open studios will give an insight into the exchange that has taken place between the artists throughout the week, and is our opportunity to extend this dialogue to a larger audience in a casual context. Please join us to see how the collaborations develop, and become part of the conversation. Exhibiting Artists: Francesca Casimir, Kayt Hughes, Mani Kambo, Tommy Keenan, Ciara Lenihan, Euan Lynn, Kitty McMurray, Oliver Perry, James Watts.
