The Tetley

Nous Vous: A Watery Line

19 July – 31 August 2014

A Watery Line, residency and exhibition is produced as part of A New Reality: Part 3.

Over the last two weeks in July, Nous Vous will transform The Tetley into a ‘live’ work/exhibition space open to everyone. Nous Vous will exhibit drawings, prints, paintings and objects, producing new artwork in on-site open studios and working with a selection of other artists to deliver a programme of performances and workshops. The result of this activity will remain in the space for a further four weeks.

The exhibition/residency will respond to The Tetley’s history following its recent refurbishment; speculating about its future function and investigating the point where art interacts with everyday life through various forms of ‘making’.

Nous Vous encourage and welcome all members of the community to take part in the workshops led by them and invited practitioners.
