EDGE projects

EDGE has been formed as an official agency to continue the work of curator/writer/project manager Reg Newitt. The website gives an overview of past achievements with information on selected projects and publications. EDGE is primarily a not-for-profit organization promoting cultural exchange between diverse geo-political zones – Europe (UK; Portugal); Asia (China; India); Australasia; USA - through the field of contemporary art. EDGE projects will continue to act as an agent - promoting and sourcing opportunities to further the professional practice – for UK artist Wayne Warren (www.waynewarren.co.uk). A collaborative association with PITT projects (UK) (www.pittstudio.com) will continue to operate a space in London on Herald Street, Bethnal Green.

EDGE projects operates a permanent exhibition space in London.
Visit the current exhibition at 13-19 Herald Street, Bethnal Green, London

Reg Newitt currently lives and works between Lisbon, London, Beijing and Sydney.  From 2007 to the present he has worked as the following: manager, 798|Red Gate Gallery, Beijing; project manager China Art Projects, Beijing; project manager for UK artist, Wayne Warren as well as independent curator of contemporary art with a cross-cultural focus. Projects include NEW AGE:NEW MEDIA (2011) – a key component of the Imagine Australia program in the Year of Australian Culture in China; Seeing Red … - the inaugural exhibition of the Sino-Australian Cultural Exchange Week, Tianjin (2013) and Peach Blossom Spring | Cacotopia – an international exhibition, academic forum and tertiary student workshops involving Chinese, Australian and British artists in Guangzhou and Darwin (2014).

The curated projects have a common concept referencing philosophical and socio-political similarities and differences between cultures and individuals over time and place.

Reg Newitt also writes articles and essays published in international magazines (eg NY Arts, Art Monthly Australia), websites, catalogues, brochures and books.

In 2016, in Lisbon, he established EDGE projects, an art agency which seeks to facilitate cultural exchange through contemporary art – exhibitions, public forums, art writing, artists’ residency and liaison between Portuguese, Australian, Chinese and UK art organisations/artists/galleries. EDGE also acts as an agent to support the professional practice of UK artist, Wayne Warren and will enhance collaboration with PITT projects (UK) on a range of international events.
