Transition is an opportunity for artists to use gallery space to consider how a series of works is developing or to try ideas for an installation or interactive project. Various artists have been given a week-long slot in the gallery with a total of eight projects taking place over four weeks.
Each project is in a constant state of flux, without the constraints of a finalised exhibition. Since the first Transition in 2000, more than 150 artists have taken part and benefitted from the opportunity it offers. Transition remains unique to Newlyn Art Gallery, and has become a vital part of our programme, gaining national acclaim.
