ArtHouses Whitley Bay

ArtHouses is a project in which artists are invited into people’s homes to share their work with audiences. This year ArtHouses is inverted, and artists have been invited to share works with audiences who host them in their homes through the internet.

Artists we are working with: Lesley Guy & Tom O’Sullivan, Laura Harrington, Dolores Hobby, Stephen Hurrel, Islanders, Fritha Jenkins, Rob Smith, Sneha Solanki, Petra Szemán.

Inversion requires a renegotiation with the things around us, and a rethinking of relationships with the places where we live, how we communicate with people and how we work. Like many others, artists’ economies have been affected, and the networks of our ecologies disrupted – economy and ecology both words that have the eco-roots in oikos , the home. This inverted version of ArtHouses presents a situation for artists to produce work at a time when we are being asked to stay in our homes and we are recalibrating our ways of working to that.
