Catch This: Hayley Newman

Longside Gallery
28 April - 24 June 2007
Hayley Newman is one of Britain's leading performance artists. She is represented in the Arts Council Collection by a range of work from two series: 'Connotations - Performance Images 1994-1998' (1998) and 'Connotations II' (2002). Newman's work builds on the rich heritage of performance art since the 1960s and explores the relationship between a performance and its documentation. She uses video, photography and text to document a range of quirky and often humorous performances that may or may not have taken place.
