Louise Giovanelli: From Here to Here, is an exhibition in two parts. Whilst Part One (14 May - 18 June) displays paintings selected by the artist from the Grundy's permanent collection, Part Two (2 July - 13 Aug) exhibits new version of these, reworked by the artist. Giovanelli draws on techniques and motifs of Old Master paintings to re-frame and re-cast details from within the portraits into a parallel history of the artist's making, rehanging the space in a ghostly echo of the originals.

This exhibition forms part of our 2016 year of programming around the Grundy's permanent collection as well as our commitment to supporting the work of young and emerging artists, in particular those from the North West.

Louise Giovanelli (b. London 1993, lives and works in Manchester) completed her BA in painting at Manchester School of Art in 2015. She has exhibited in group exhibitions in Manchester, Los Angeles and Pforzheim, Germany and will have a further solo exhibition at the International 3 Gallery in Salford .  Prima Donna at International 3 will open from the 29th June to the 5th August.
