Durham and Newcastle will be the focus of a brand new series of exhibitions that will take place in the cities this month.

Continuous Material, which was commissioned by Durham University and the Centre for Visual Arts and Cultures, will include the work of Eleanor Wright and Sam Watson, as well as six other invited artists. The artist and curator started working together in 2013 and tend to create work around the ideas of space, production and collaboration.

Their latest exhibition will centre on a number of places – both in subject-matter and location – within the North East.

The first part of the exhibition can be found at Durham Castle Museum until Sunday 10th May, where visitors will be able to discover both found and crafted items shown among existing artefacts. Visits to Durham Castle are through guided tours, which are available throughout the day, with the addition of three special guided tours, led by Eleanor Wright and Sam Watson, taking place on Thursday 30th April, Saturday 2nd and Saturday 9th May.

At the second location, Drop City in Newcastle, the artists exhibit a series of photographs entitled Gradual Stiffening. These will only be viewable by appointments, which can be made online at www.drop-city.net between Thursday 7th and Sunday 24th May. This system has been put in place to create a more direct and contemplative relationship between the audience and exhibition, which is a massively important aspect of Continuous Material as a whole.

Continuous Material is at Durham Castle Museum until Sunday 10th May and Drop City, Newcastle from Thursday 7th until Sunday 24th May.
