The exhibition, Expanded Interiors Re-Staged, relocated to Newcastle’s Hatton Gallery contemporary installations created by visual artist Catrin Huber as part of an earlier project, Expanded Interiors, which had been sited and displayed at the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Herculaneum and Pompeii. The installations sited at the House of the Beautiful Courtyard in Herculaneum and the House of the Cryptoporticus in Pompeii, had responded to and were in dialogue with the specific nature of the buildings and wall paintings from these two Roman houses. They were shown in situ from May 2018 – January 2019.

In the Hatton Gallery in Newcastle these installations were exhibited alongside new work developed by Catrin Huber to set them in a fresh dialogue in a new context, with the distinctive architecture of the Hatton Gallery.

Artist Rosie Morris, who was part of the original Expanded Interiors research team was commissioned to develop her own contemporary installation in response to the research done within the Roman houses, and the new venue
