Hope Stebbing and Oliver Perry: YOUR WORLD TOMORROW

Stebbing and Perry’s work looks at how language is used in the everyday, specifically in regeneration and political contexts. They explore how language can be used to fuel desire and aspiration, questioning how language can be manipulated through its typographical form and context.

In the upstairs gallery works by Northumbria graduates Stebbing and Perry include ONWARD TOGETHER AS ONE a major installation born out of a partnership between Northumbria University and Great North Run Culture. The work was shown on the day of the half marathon as a pop up installation, occupying satellite locations throughout the run's different boroughs.  Brought together here for the first time, the components in the installation speak both about the circumstances of its original commission and the new direction for the exhibition spaces at Northumbria University, now under the management of the university’s Department of Arts.
