Posted by Ollie on August 21st, 2014

Commissioned and curated by Robert Teed & Paula Jackson FRSA of The New School House Gallery


John Newling is an internationally known artist recognised as a pioneer of public art with a social purpose, and he will be based in St Helen’s Square, in the centre of York, throughout July 2014. Newling’s residency is entitled ‘21st Century Eden’, and from a market stall in the square – the artist’s temporary studio for the month – he will interact with the public, asking them the question ‘What Do We Really Want?’ and researching what a ‘21st Century Eden’ would look like.
