Gallery of Wonder on Tour video

Science, art and wonder…

The Gallery of Wonder on Tour exhibition at the Powburn Show 2015 was a great success.

It surprised visitors who had expected a traditional country show with dog trials, wrestling and jam-making with a “showground curiosity” from the past… “a black tent full of video installations, and taxidermy and all manner of strange and engaging things!”

Wow! That’s the reaction we’re looking for!

Funded by Arts Council England, Berwick Visual Arts, Newcastle University’s Institute for Creative Arts Practice and Northumberland County Council, the Gallery of Wonder on Tour exhibition aimed to encourage questioning of relationships between art and science, gallery spaces and museums.

It undoubtedly evoked a sense of wonder in the numerous people who visited the installation at the Powburn Show, provoking debates and stimulating quizzical questioning – from adults and children alike.

As part of the Gallery of Wonder On Tour project a video was commissioned and, of particular interest to people of the Breamish Valley, it was actually filmed at the Powburn Show.

Take a look now…and wonder…
