Generation

Art In Newcastle City Centre, Tyne And Wear

Statues of three heads representing different eras of human and industrial production.

If you want to get ahead in life, then you may have to face going to University. And if you happen to attend Newcastle University, then look out for three heads in the Student Forum Space named Generation.


Designed by Joseph Hillier in 2005, a former graduate of Fine Art from Newcastle Uni, the heads are meant represent different eras of human and industrial production.


Bronze head -  Early metalworking in the North of England

Corten Steel head - Later advances in industry

Steel head - Resembles the modern digital age.


You might have spied this exhibit before as it used to be outside the former One North East headquarters at Newburn Riverside.


Thanks to our new Fabulous North friend Allyson Dovey for sending us these photos.

Loads of parking in the city centre, but the Claremont Road car park isn't too far away.

Thanks for checking out this place on the Fabulous North! I do enjoy a wander out in to the countryside trying to find hidden gems that not many people know about. You can't beat a rogue Pele tower up a remote hill or a mysterious stone circle or a stunning waterfall secluded in a forest.
