11 for 2011 ARTIST FILMS

11 for 2011 is a pilot programme of artists films featuring emerging and established contemporary artists in the North East gaining National and International recognition. The artists featured were shortlisted by the Critical Dialogue Working Group from a longlist of suggestions from the Turning Point Network.

These films are being filmed across the Autumn, 5 are now complete, all 11 should be finished by December. These films will be promoted on this website, our regional Contemporary Art listing site for the North East www.contemporaryARTNE.com and on stakeholders's websites.

These films form part of our  work which focuses on promoting artists Nationally and Internationally who have been endorsed by a number of professionals in the field.

Details of all artists featured will go live in December when all films are complete, but in the meantime check out Richard Forster's film, the first one made in this programme. Richard currently has a solo show at Mima, Middlesbrough and has a forthcoming exhibition at the Flag Foundation in New York in January 2012.
