The Space Between the Sole and the Heel


Globe Gallery celebrated its 10th Year Anniversary with ‘The Space In Between the Sole and the Heel’. The exhibition curated by Matthew Hearn and Sarah Warden focused upon the origins of the building, ‘The Globe Boot Company’, a former shoe shop familiar to residents of North Shields. Globe has occupied this building for over ten years, exhibiting the work of hundreds of contemporary artists.

Referencing this history, this exhibition transformed the Gallery once again into a representation of the show shop it once was. Over 60 artists have been commissioned to make works in shoeboxes, which were presented alongside other shoe related art works, ephemera and installations.
