Magnificent Distance

a 5x5 project

Documents five site specific installations created by five Newcastle-based artists in response to the iconic environs of Washington DC, USA.


Each artist responded to the city's carefully planned and ordered urban design as well as its complex human histories and communities.


The project was curated by Director of Grit & Pearl Richard Hollingshead.


About 5x5 

The D.C Commission on the Arts and Humanities selected five highly experienced and innovative curators to each identify and work with five artists to create exciting, temporary art works. The resulting twenty-five installations will activate and enliven vacant, dormant, and open spaces whilst helping to build relationships with local residents, galleries, and cultural institutions.
