Critics say £5m for ‘northern powerhouse' event compares unfavourably with council cutsA mural featuring a Greggs steak bake and the UK's largest water sculpture are among the attractions at the Great Exhibition of the North, a summer-long festival which aims to emulate the success of the Victorians' world expositions on a tiny fraction of the budget.The exhibition, which opened on Friday with a blast of confetti on the Quayside in Newcastle, has been set up to shine a light on the north of England's cultural and industrial past and present.

De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill-on-SeaThis English sculptor is an alchemist, transforming primeval natural forms into dreamlike abstractions full of romance and mysteryRed Skies, which Alison Wilding created in 1992, is a hollow metal column split down its centre to let you peer inside. Within its dark interior floats a brass globe covered in enigmatic bumps and markings, like a magician's occult signs. Around that hangs a red acrylic sleeve that transfigures the world framed by the narrow opening. Right now, installed in a long white gallery with a glass wall facing Bexhill beach, it frames the blue sea and sky. When you look through it they are set on fire. Wilding is an alchemist whose art is full of romance and mystery and sudden transformations. She is also, her mini-retrospective at the De La Warr Pavilion makes plain, an artist of nature.

Then you see the title: Cuckoo I. The menace begins to make sense. This bulging black cuckoo's egg promises death. It contains a murderous embryo. Jagged, tooth-like cuts in the metal “nest” add to the sense of impending violence. Continue reading... [...]

For those growing up, as I did, in Glasgow in the 1980s and '90s, the work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868–1928) felt omnipresent, a part of the fabric and texture of the city. The stylised rose motif, like a tray of sweet cakes, the impossibly high-backed chairs, and of course the modern typefaces based on his lettering, full of floating ‘o's, multiplied bars and decorative marks everywhere.
