Catch This: Hayley Newman

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.




The Arts Council Collection is the UK's most widely seen collection of modern and contemporary art.

With more than 8,000 works by over 2,000 artists, it can be seen in exhibitions and public displays across the country and beyond. This website offers unprecedented access to the Collection, and information about each work can be found on this site.
