Local Artist Emily Hesse featured in AXIS

Emily Hesse for New Linthorpe at mima Localism exhibition

We worked with Emily on our River Tees Re-discovered Willow Pattern Plate engagement last year and will be working with Emily again in the next few months in a residency to be based in Middlesbrough and engage with groups of refugees and newly arrived people who co-produced with her during the Localism exhibition at mima earlier this year. Read Emily’s interview, as artist of the month, in AXIS below:
