The Witches’ Institution (W.I.) was an exhibition by artist Emily Hesse, imagined and developed in collaboration with organiser, writer and BALTIC Professor at Northumbria University Andrea Phillips:
Bringing together Hesse’s sculpture, curatorial practice and PhD research at the Belfast School of Art, Ulster University, and Phillips’ research on (re)organising cultural institutions, The Witches’ Institution (W.I.) also included work by artists Ana Mendieta and The Otolith Group.
Through a series of experimental works, discussions and experiences, the exhibition was envisioned as an exercise in world building, aiming to imagine what a cultural institution run by witches could be.
