Exhibition Turns Back Time on Newcastle Transformative Decade


NEWCASTLE MUSEUM DIRECTOR JULIE BAIRD AND ARTIST TREVOR DICKINSON WITH SOME OF THE VIBRANT WORK INCLUDED IN THE NEW EXHIBITION, OH YEAH, I FORGOT ABOUT THAT: A DECADE OF CHANGE SEEN THROUGH THE EYES OF MR TREVOR DICKINSON, ARTIST

It's not unusual for a museum to turn back the clock to celebrate the way things were. But Newcastle Museum is focussing

on the past to draw attention to the present, with an exhibition designed to highlight how the cityscape has changed during the last decade.

 

The exhibition was curated to celebrate the Museum's 10th year of operation in the former Railway Workshops at Honeysuckle.


Aptly titled, Oh yeah, I forgot about that: A decade of change seen through the eyes of Mr Trevor Dickinson, Artist, it features more than 20 works by the much-loved Newcastle artist, including two new pieces commissioned for this show.


"Trevor's colourful, larger-than-life murals have formed an intrinsic part of the Museum and its surrounds since we opened the doors here in August 2011," said Newcastle Museum Director Julie Baird.


"We quickly forget what has changed in our city as new landscapes become normal. For our 10th anniversary, Newcastle

Museum wanted to remind people of the alterations to our normal and often unnoticed cityscape.


"Through the artwork chosen for this exhibition, Trevor presents his own view of Newcastle, curating the identity of the natural landscape in the same way we curate its history."


"To celebrate Newcastle Museum's own journey, we also commissioned Trevor to create two new artworks, capturing something constant and something that has changed within the Museum. These are being seen for the first time in this

exhibition."


Oh yeah, I forgot about that: A decade of change seen through the eyes of Mr Trevor Dickinson, Artist, is open to the public now until 27 February 2022.
