Twenty Twenty Visions is an exhibition running at Art Systems Wickham from 8 to 24 June 2020. Curated by Graham Wilson, the exhibition asks 20 Novocastrians – visual artists, architects, typographers, sculptors … and one writer – for their vision of Newcastle in the year 2020.
My entry took the form of an
extended rant imaginary chapter of my book, published in 2021, called Ten Years Down the Drain: Walking in Styx Creek, 2010 to 2020. If you can’t make it to the exhibition then I’ve reproduced the text on this 2020 page. The words were typeset and illustrated by Christine Bruderlin, who also designed, typeset and illustrated the original book.
