M I L K will takeover Workplace Gateshead for a 2 Month period as organisation in residence during which they will programme 3 group exhibitions and a series of accompanying talks and events featuring both M I L K members and invited artists from the North East region and further afield.
The first two exhibitions are about doubt from within and from without. Both exhibitions address themes that are relevant to early-career and emerging artists and will provide an important comment on what it is to be a young artist in the North in 2016.
M I L K are an artist-led collective based in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Formed in 2015, M I L K aim to provide a platform for emerging artists to exhibit. As practicing artists themselves, M I L K members perceived a lack of opportunities and recognised exhibition spaces in Newcastle for early career and emerging artists.
M I L K seeks to address this discord with a varied programme of exhibitions and events focused on supporting early career artists both regionally and nationally.
