The Bowes Centre for The Bowes Museum
Launched in 2018 this successful format now continues in 2019 with the March Open Call. Ten artists-in-residence across arts, craft and design disciplines will develop ideas in response to The Bowes Museum in new and diverse ways. 2018 included a unique, contemporary dance by Eliot Smith Dance performed in a gallery for the first time; sound heritage work discovered unheard notes of 180 years in the music collection and neon light installations changed both colour and experience within the museum. BBC and media coverage continued post exhibition and further developments of artist’s work continue extending the legacy of their commissions.
