Artist Melanie Manchot was in the North East bright and early today filming on the rooftop of one of the most recognisable and iconic buildings in the UK for her new film, Tracer.
For our 2012 programme we commissioned Turner Prize winning artist Mark Wallinger to make a new film inspired by the Great North Run, Camera Running. So we’re absolutely delighted that last night Mark became the first artist ever to be inducted into the Great North Run Hall of Fame.
Last year we commissioned stand up poet, broadcaster and first ever Great North Run Poet in Residence Kate Fox to make a new show for families. This week The Starting Line makes its London debut as part of the Imagine children’s festival at the Southbank Centre in London.
We thought we’d kick off 2013 with some good news – we’re delighted to say that our Douglas Gordon commission for #GNRC12 opens in Tel Aviv on 24 January.
