The interpretation leaflet was designed by Jaakko Tuomivaara from Supergroup Studios. Texts are by Catrin Huber and Rosie Morris. Photography by Amedeo Benestante (Gallery 1, Gallery 4), Catrin Huber (Gallery 2), Rosie Morris (Gallery 3), and need to be credited accordingly.

The interpretation leaflet provided an introduction to the project, research and exhibition and guided the viewer through the exhibition. Texts by the respective artists (Catrin Huber / Rosie Morris) provided contexts for the different exhibition galleries while linking the research / installations to Hadrian’s Wall and relevant local museums (e.g. Segedunum, Hancock Museum). The guide was / is available in physical / digital form in the Hatton Gallery and on its website, and on the Expanded Interiors Re-Staged’s website.

The Expanded Interiors Re-Staged exhibition forms one of the key outputs of the Expanded Interiors Re-Staged project.

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
