‘Urban Fictions’ explored the relationship between personal identity and sense of place in the north east over a three week-long period at the Holy Biscuit gallery in May 2014. It suggests alternative versions of the city and the region behind the “party city” economy for which it is well known. The exhibition consisted of photography, video, comic strips and installations by local artists, students and urban explorers with an emphasis on forgotten and abandoned locations around Tyneside and their personal meanings for the contributors.
The exhibition was part of the annual Late Shows ‘cultural crawl’ in Newcastle and Gateshead
The Journal published a piece about the exhibition which included a gallery.
