Alistair Hudson and Sarah Munro: New visions for art

Monday, 8 February 2016
Venue: Durham Castle
Doors open 7.30pm, event starts at 8pm

The Centre for Visual Arts and Culture (CVAC) is delighted to welcome Sarah Munro (Director of BALTIC, Gateshead) and Alistair Hudson (Director of Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art) to Durham Castle to deliver a public lecture. Both are visionaries with a wealth of experience in cultural leadership gained during distinguished careers. In 2015 Alistair Hudson was on the Turner Prize jury and Sarah Munro brought the Turner Prize to Scotland for the first time. Since his appointment in October 2014 Alistair Hudson has transformed Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art into an institution dedicated to the promotion of art as a tool for education and social change. Sarah Munro became Director of BALTIC in November 2015 and there is an expectation that she will both re-energise the gallery and support the cultural infrastructure of the region as a whole with her passion and ambition.

Both speakers will talk about their radical visions for art in the North-East.
