The Customs House

A collaborative painting project bringing together artists from Newcastle University, the University of Sunderland and the creative community of South Tyneside to create large-scale paintings inspired by the Greek myth of Arachne.

Following two previous collaborative painting projects, Glaucus & Scylla (2022) and Prometheus (2023), Arachne expands on the themes of collaboration and ownership discussed in previous years and explores the overlap between painting and sculpture.
