Dance First, Think Later

The Birley Project Space at Manchester Contemporary

Kathryn Poole

 

Special Event at Old Granada Studios, Manchester

Thursday 22 - Sunday 25 September 2016

We're delighted to be supporting emerging artists from Preston at this year's
The Manchester Contemporary.

The Birley Project Space & Studios is based just a few hundred yards from the Harris and hosts exhibitions, residencies, live events, off-site projects and workshops. It nurtures contemporary practice by local, national and international artists, supporting them in testing new ideas, developing collaborations and taking an experimental approach to practice.

 

 

Curator at the Harris Museum & Art Gallery, Clarissa Corfe, has selected artists from The Birley and associated artists to exhibit.

 

 

 

 

Artists showing include:

Mat Birchall
Rebecca Chesney
Bonnie Craig
Peter Daviz
Steph Fletcher
Sarah Louise Hawkins
Tracy Hill
Tao Lashley-Burnley
Brian Morrison
Kathryn Poole
Gavin Renshaw
Ben Rutherford
Magda Stawarska-Beavan
Lisa Wigham

 

Established in September 2014, The Birley was set up by Post Post CIC, a not-for-profit organisation made up of recent graduates.

It is supported by Preston City Council, Northern Lights at UCLan, In Certain Places and UnLtd.
