Hayley Newman: MKVH

Offsite Performance

30.3. – 1.4.2006

This project took place in collaboration with *Rules  & Regs.


*Rules and Regs is a platform supporting artists to develop their practice and create new Live Art. Made within a short time frame, the intention is that pieces should represent an approach from which future work might develop. As part of this programme, MK G worked with Hayley Newman and William Hunt to develop new commissions in response to the unique contexts of the gallery and of Milton Keynes


Newman is one of the country’s most consistently inventive artists, making performances in public spaces that cast a humorous, often surreal light on everyday life. She has worn the entire contents of a jeweller’s shop window and instated a fruit and veg’ stall on a busy train. In Milton Keynes the starting point of her project was a bus driven around the city’s grid network until it ran out of fuel.
