Modern History vol.1
Curated by Lynda Morris

Modern History vol. 1 is an exhibition that brings together the work of artists from the North West, guest curated by Lynda Morris. The exhibition preview will be on Friday 24 April at the Grundy Art Gallery, Blackpool, 5pm-8pm.

 

A programme of events and talks will take place at the gallery on Saturday 25 April, from 11am. 

 

This is the first of  a series of three exhibitions of North West based artists taking place across the region in 2015. Initiated by the Contemporary Visual Arts Network North West (CVAN NW), the exhibitions at Grundy Art Gallery, Blackpool, Bury Art Museum & Sculpture Centre and The Atkinson, Southport form a core part of a programme of professional development for artists based in the North West which aims to give increased exposure both inside and outside the region. The exhibitions will be accompanied by a series of artist / curator talks, tours and open studios.

 

Lynda Morris said: “I know from curating EASTinternational that the North West has some of the best artists working in Europe today. It is still possible to be an artist who is a moral force in modern history, if you make work about the life of the people in Manchester, Liverpool, Preston, Birkenhead or Cumbria.”

 

More details coming soon!
