Exhibition Launch – Thurs 21st April, 6 – 8.30pm
Exhibition continues 22nd April 11am – 4pm
We are hosting an exhibition of final year students’ work from Manchester School of Art this week and would love to see you for the preview this Thursday evening at 6pm.
Responding to the industrial past of the Casket Works, (the Victorian building which houses Hot Bed Press,) the exhibiting artists aim to stage a creative industry of their own exploring the relevance of analogue and non-digital production in the digital age.
Taking into account the heritage of both the Casket Works and the soon to be developed land in front of the building, they will explore narratives suggested by the environment and play with this ingrained history allowing for past, future and social narratives to evolve.
The exhibition is curated by Daniel Goodwin and James Mathews Hiskett
The exhibiting artists include : Anna Glinkina, Ruth Wilson, Sinead Moakes, Sam Whitham, Sarah Thomas, Clare Soutter, Sian Leyshon, Bella Jones, Sumeyah Leyden , Cerys Thorne, Alex Manning, Joanna Haworth, Kim Robinson in collaboration with Phoebe Phillips, Sarah Dean, Sarah Wakefield, Lewis Toumazou, Daniel Goodwin, James Mathews Hiskett and Abbie Harris.
