The current members from Depot Art Studios show their work together for the first time, taking on the space of the Old Bank Residency. The works playfully respond to the architecture, original features and past function of the building that was the old Co-op bank and consider the trace of the people and activity that were once here.
The artists have recently come together as studio members and this space gives the group the opportunity to experiment and test their own practices as well as explore each others’, drawing links between their ideas within the context of this disused, and now repurposed, public space in Manchester.
Each of the five exhibiting artists have very different sources for the origin of their work, yet a common aesthetic somehow brings them together within a collective arena. Works being shown will include methods such as sculpture, drawing, abstract painting, appropriation and institutional critique.
Venue fully wheelchair accessible. There is a small, sloping step at the front entrance, but we have a ramp available.
