MASTERPIECE REMODELLED FOR MODERN LIFE Tuesday, 3 December 2019
Young people in County Durham have created their own response to a 17th century masterpiece as part of an innovative project exploring contemporary culture.
Taking inspiration from Nicholas Poussin’s painting, The Triumph of Pan, representatives from St John’s Catholic Academy, Bishop Auckland and The LADDER Centre, Ferryhill have created two photographic artworks tackling the issues of excess and identity in modern society.
The new interpretations of The Triumph of Pan will be on display at Auckland Tower until Sunday, 5 January 2020.
