From 2006-2010, Hinterland was led independent curator, Jennie Syson. Working together with artists, Hinterland was set up to closely examine geographical areas that surround the River Trent in Nottingham, which make up a ten-mile car free cycle route around the city known as the Big Track. Temporary site-specific commissions are selected to scrutinise specific places as though encapsulated in a species quadrant.

Hinterland Projects has now completed its series of site-specific projects along the River Trent in Nottingham. The Reading Room continues its programme at SYSON and other venues.

In 2009, Hinterland launched a number of events, exhibitions and talks alongside new site-specific commissions of temporary public art.

All events were free to attend and the programme was be accompanied by ‘Reading Room’ events, which discussed selected texts chosen to complement the artwork produced.

Hinterland between 2006-10 comprised artist’s talks, presentations and seminars; a series of 3 bespoke publications documenting past and present projects including commissioned texts on the arts and ecology, site-specific art works and the local history of the Hinterland site.
