The Castlegate ART commission is a collaboration between Castlegate Shopping Centre, mima and Stockton Borough Council providing a new art platform for Teesside.

In 2017, we launched ‘Turn Back Tide’ by Aikaterini Gegisian who was commissioned by Miguel Amado, Senior Curator, and Giles Maffett, Assistant Curator, mima, to produce a work for Castlegate ART.
