New talk and exhibition at Norman Rea Gallery

Posted on 16 October 2014

A curator talk and a Caribbean photography exhibition will take place this month at the University of York’s Norman Rea Gallery.

On 20 October Dr Michael White, Senior Lecturer in the History of Art department, will speak about his experience of co-curating the popular “Mondrian and his Studios” exhibition at Tate Liverpool. The exhibition ran over the summer and commemorated the 70thanniversary of the death of the artist Piet Mondrian, a revolutionary in abstraction.

Starting at 7pm, Dr White will speak about his experience of curating such a successful exhibition, followed by a Q&A. All are welcome to attend the free talk and enjoy a glass of wine.

An exhibition on the Caribbean islands of Trinidad and Tobago is also currently running until 24 October. The first time artists from outside the EU have been featured at the gallery, .868. is a joint exhibition displaying works from three photographers - Maria Nunes, Zacques Morrison and Dylan Quesnel.

Through the lens of these photographers, .868. seeks to capture the essence of the present lifestyle, culture and natural beauty of the Caribbean islands.

Svetlana Leu, Director of Press and Publicity at the Norman Rea Gallery, said: “This year we are seeking to completely rebrand the gallery. By hosting several unique exhibitions such as .868. and introducing new events like the Curator Talks, we hope to make the gallery current and continuously appealing to the university population as well as to the wider community in York.”

The Norman Rea Gallery is run entirely by students at the University of York. Situated above The Courtyard in Derwent College, the gallery hosts exhibitions throughout the year and promotes the work of both student and professional artists. The gallery hosts three exhibitions a term with lectures, seminars and events.
