Durty Beanz: NEVER EVER

Wed – Sun, 11am – 4pm

Gymnasium Gallery

Developed during their 6-month residency in 2022 with The Maltings and Newcastle University, NEVER EVER presents an ambitious new film work exploring the complex set of relationships between food, rurality and digital spaces in Northumberland.

Durty Beanz are an Action Research group based in Glasgow. The project has grown to include interdisciplinary artists, academics and makers from across the world, allowing the group to produce a diverse range of outputs operating at the intersection of contemporary art practice and digital anthropology.

Their goal is to playfully interrogate the shifting status of digital food objects, specifically in relation to global food inequalities, climate crisis and cultural identities.

NEVER EVER is supported by Newcastle University’s Institute for Creative Arts Practice and Centre for Rural Economy.
