Public Art

Mark di Suvero, Stefan Gec, Permindar Kaur, Nathan Coley (Turner Prize shortlisted in 2006), Cathy de Monchaux (Turner Prize shortlisted in 1998), Andy Plant and Michael Pinsky are just some of the artists with international reputations who have created permanent and temporary works in the borough. Images of selected public art works in North Tyneside can be seen in our photo gallery.

The approach taken has been to explore different ways in which public art can be created and exhibited - ranging from major landmark works to subtle interventions developed with local communities, from permanent sculptural work to video and digital art projections.

Many of the public art projects in North Tyneside have been on the Metro system as part of Nexus' extensive Art on Transport programme, including 'The Day Before You Looked Through Me' at Cullercoats, 'Pulse' and 'Detour' at Four Lane Ends, and 'Pontis' in Wallsend.
