#Untitled10


11 October 2019 - 28 February 2020

Following the success of #Untitled10 2018, these diverse craft makers and artists in residence will respond to The Bowes Museum’s collections in completely new ways, which will be on public display from 11 October 2019 until 28 February 2020.

The exhibition will give a unique and experimental perspective, showcasing the creative processes of the artists and key themes will include exploring the concepts of craft, materials and making.

Their interpretations of the stories surrounding the Museum, its creation and history will be presented as deliberately unfinished, work-in-progress objects, installations and performances that will highlight the exploratory journey they have taken during the commission, provoking conversation.

Their work will be shown around the Museum, in spaces and alongside pieces that inspired them, like #Untitled10 2018.

The Bowes Museum grounds are open!


Due to the government announcement on Thursday 17 December, that County Durham is to remain in COVID tier 3 restrictions, The Bowes Museum unfortunately will remain closed to all visitors. However, the grounds remain open to visitors from 10.00 - 4.00 daily, and we are currently hosting a woodland fairy trail, two spring trails and outdoor guided tours are available from 29 March 2021.

As we have already been shut for a number of weeks and there is much uncertainty around possible further restrictions, we have decided to use this period to undertake some work in Café Bowes, alongside performing some much-needed structural repairs to the building, notably to the windows. January and February are usually quieter times for the Museum, often due to severe weather, so we believe that this is the best time to carry out such works with the least amount of disruption to our visitors.

We have therefore decided to remain closed for a period of four weeks following any near-future tier 2 announcement from the government, as this will allow us time to deep clean the Museum prior to reopening our doors once again. We will, of course, keep you updated as the guidelines change.

Your ongoing support during these unprecedented times is hugely appreciated and we very much look forward to welcoming you back into the building as early as possible in 2021.

We hope to be able to offer a few COVID-safe outdoor events over the coming months, about which we shall make further announcements as soon as possible.
