Tyneside Cinema will host a screening of Newcastle-based artist Kate Liston’s film Treatment – part of the Women Artists of the North East Library, an exhibition and public programme showcasing the work of women artists that explores influence regionally and beyond. As well as bringing together a wealth of donated material, the programme has also provided a chance to question how building such a library can illuminate how artists work in relation with one another.

Liston’s film will be placed alongside a selection of work that has influenced her on Thursday 30th August, including a live performance of Tess Denman-Cleaver’s Mutualism, a performance response written with Treatment that is part of a body of work developing between the two artists.

Ella Bergmann-Michel’s 1931 work Wo Wohnen Alte Leute will present a dialogue with Liston’s Film for EBM, observing a working day in an old people’s home in Weimar Germany. Liston, Denman-Cleaver and Library co-initiator Holly Argent are also set to be in conversation after the event, shedding further light on the responsive nature of their work and the ways in which their different practices have become intertwined. The Women Artists of the North East Library is currently at Workplace Gallery in Gateshead until Sunday 9th September.
