Each commission will be managed by one of the New Geographies partners. The commissions will be jointly delivered by Wysing Arts Centre, Cambridge, Art Exchange, University of Essex Colchester; East Gallery, Norwich University of the Arts; Firstsite, Colchester; Focal Point Gallery, Southend; Kettle’s Yard, University of Cambridge; Norwich Castle Museum & Art Gallery; originalprojects; Great Yarmouth; and UH Galleries, University of Hertfordshire.
All the organisations are members of the ECVAN (East Contemporary Visual Arts Network). Additional support comes from community outreach partners. This project also continues to strengthen ECVAN’s international relationship with artists, curators and directors from the Netherlands who will also be helping to select the chosen artists.
We envisage that each commission will be different but that all will in some way respond to the map, locations and stories; either individual locations, themes or other unexpected connections.
