      EVENT DETAILS
      East Meets West

      Interface Arts is a network for artists in County Durham and the surrounding areas. This exhibition showcases works influenced by both the Oriental Museum's collections and Durham University's contemporary Western Art collections. Interface members explored Durham University's Western Art collection, which includes prints, drawing and sculpture. The themes of this collection include Pop Art, British Modernism, the St Ives Group, and the Pitmen Painters. The group also took part in a number of workshops at the Oriental Museum exploring objects from the Ancient Egyptian, Japanese, Chinese and South Asian collections in detail and the rich stories behind the objects. The complex interplay of influences from East and West, materials, techniques as well as members own interests combine to make a stimulating and thought-provoking exhibition.

      Cost: £1.50, concs 75p, family £3.50
