'The Sharing Of Uncertainty' explores John Newling's ever-expanding relationship with nature and the human species. John Newling was born in Birmingham in 1952 and has an acclaimed international reputation creating projects and installing works in the UK and many other countries. Nottingham-based, John Newling is a pioneer of public art with a social purpose. His works explore the natural world and the social and economic systems of society – such as money or religion. To this end, Newling has innovated the possibilities and benefits for art in a renewed social and conceptual framework.

The exhibition runs from the 25th of September till the 30th of October, Monday to Friday between 12 to 4pm at our Albert Street Gallery. If you would like to attend the opening night next Friday book your tickets now via Eventbrite using the link below!
