Curated by renowned documentary photographer Martin Parr, this exhibition explores how international photographers viewed Britain from the 1930s onwards, with works by Henri Cartier-Bresson, Rineke Dijkstra, and Garry Winogrand.
A portrait exhibition and video installation featuring the founding female members of Manchester's very own Vogue house, The House Of Ghetto. Proudly celebrating black gay culture, the exhibition takes place over two floors with photographic portraits by Cornel Simons on floor one and a video instalation by Amy Watson & Dennis Keighron-Foster on floor two.
Barbara Brown was the golden girl of Heal Fabrics in the 1960s and early 1970s. Talent-spotted as a student, her designs for furnishing fabrics are some of the most striking and unusual ever produced in the 20th century and won awards from the Council of Industrial Design. This is the first major solo exhibition of her work in the UK.
The exhibition, for space, brings together a group of artists who emphasise and consider the exploration and excavation of space through various approaches to drawing. With Anna Barriball, Tom Baskeyfield, Jack Brown, Layla Curtis, Gerry Davies, Hondartza Fraga, Jenny Steele, James Steventon and Simon Woolham.
