The Exposure video project is a partnership between Newcastle Art Gallery and Callaghan College, Jesmond Senior Campus. Year 11 students work closely with their Visual Art teachers and Gallery staff to prepare questions to interview exhibiting artists in the Gallery, as well as in their studios. This project provides these students with an insight into the art world and the role of practicing artists; while creating an important educational resource to accompany exhibitions.
