New Writing with New Contemporaries

In 2019 Corridor8 worked with Leeds Art Gallery and Bloomberg New Contemporaries on a development programme for emerging artists who use writing or language in their work, ‘New Writing with New Contemporaries‘ (NWwNC). As part of the programme a series of three articles were commissioned with support from Leeds Inspired (see below).

The six nominated New Writing with New Contemporaries artists – Jude Browning, Lucy Rose Cunningham, Freya Dooley, Malachy Harvey, Leo Hermitt and Ruby Lewis – performed at Leeds City Gallery on 9 November 2019, with a subsequent iteration at South London Gallery on 25 January 2020. The selection panel comprised Maria Fusco, Katrina Palmer, Bedwyr Williams, Harold Offeh and Heather Phillipson.
