Celebrating Hidden Middlesbrough Commissions

Sara Cooper Tunnel Gallery Commission
Sara Cooper Commission, The Tunnel Gallery Pilot Programme 2020

Throughout the programme there will be four further Tunnel Gallery commissions and a Middlesbrough Collection Artist Commission.

The Tunnel Gallery

An exploration of public art in Middlesbrough. Delivered as a collaboration between Navigator North, The Auxiliary, Tees Valley Arts and Platform A Gallery. Site specific temporary works responding to heritage are shown in the pedestrian underpass in Middlesbrough Railway Station, the billboard under the A66 bridge on Albert Road and online via virtual galleries and website. Four new commissions will continue to build upon the pilot project which took place between October 2020 and April 2021.

Middlesbrough Collection Artist Commission

Delivered in partnership with MIMA. This will be a research commission focused on the Middlesbrough Collection and its archive. It will explore histories of presenting and collecting art in Middlesbrough and the social and political life of the area through revealing overlooked narratives and sharing new perspectives on the area’s heritage.
