Well, the Bupa Great North Run is over for another year and we've enjoyed another incredible week of sport and art.
We met Olympic medallists competing in the Great North CityGames; saw the première of Mark Wallinger’s film Camera Running at BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, followed by a packed out artist
Q&A with Kirsty Wark; soaked up the atmosphere on the Quayside for
the Junior and Mini Great North Runs; took part in Kate Fox’s new
interactive show for families at Live Theatre; spotted Dan Holdsworth’s
beautiful new photos on billboards, Metro stations and bus stops along
the course of the Run; and launched Karin Kihlberg and Reuben Henry’s
new film and book The Order of Things.
On Sunday at the Great North Run, Mark Wallinger talked to Sue Barker on BBC ONE about Camera Running,
winner of our 2013 Moving Image Commission Melanie Manchot started
work on her new film (more on that coming soon), and Daisy de
Villeneuve joined us at the finish area to take photos for a new
project for our 2013 programme.
