Research output: Non-textual formExhibition


This year Wallington Hall, one of Northumberland’s most popular National Trust attractions, celebrates the 200th anniversary of the birth of William Bell Scott, the 19th century poet, writer, artist and teacher, with an exciting new contemporary art exhibition entitled ‘Unfinished Business’. Under the direction of the artist-curator Chris Dorsett, Reader in Art School Practices at Northumbria University, and the project management of Gillian Mason, Visitor Experience Manager at Wallington, a wide range of imaginative and modern-day artistic responses to Scott will take inspiration from his famous paintings in Wallington’s Central Hall. Scott’s plans for the Central Hall were left incomplete and ‘Unfinished Business’ explores this unfulfilled legacy with an exhibition of indeterminate length and open-ended participation.This website is a vehicle for sharing work in progress and an archive of the unfolding exhibition at Wallington. Each participating artist maintains their own web page.
