In Autumn 2011 the stars align in the Contemporary Art world to present a fantastic contemporary art offer to audiences in the greater north region and beyond. An exceptional number of exhibitions and events take place that are to be celebrated and profiled through a new pilot initiative that is to be undertaken across the Turning Point regions of North West, North East and Yorkshire and Humberside.
Between September and November the following launch:
International Print Biennale 17th September - 9th November 2011
The 2nd event of its kind delivered by Northern Print Studio and at venues across the North East.
New Contemporaries, Sheffield 22nd September - 30th October 2011

The Northern Art Prize, Leeds Art Gallery Leeds 25th November 2011 - 19th February 2012
Going from strength or strength, this prize is gaining momentum year on year.
This unique offering presents the whole spectrum of contemporary art practice and perhaps more importantly for audiences, the full story of artists' careers from emerging to established.
All Points North will look to work to collaboratively profile this offer and and anchor the programme with supporting partners who to date include:
Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Wakefield
The Hepworth, Wakefield.
AXIS are supporting the initiative by hosting and managing a listings website profiling the project which we hope to update you on about soon.
