Between November 2014 – October 2015 Drop City, Newcastle presented 8 exhibitions in our gallery at 20 South Street. Since it is Drop City’s ambition to work with artists who are at various stages of their careers and whose practices have a particular reference to Drop City and its founders motivations, the gallery space allowed for an intense and complex relationship to develop between artists and audiences during our first year.

As our location at 20 South Street closed for re-development, we are excited to take this opportunity to explore more ways to work in the city, carrying on the format of a commercial gallery – representing and supporting our artists work on the art market – whilst opening up more diverse and dynamic potential for our activity and engagement with the city.
