Triple Decker presents a tempting three-tier art event stuffed to the brim with contemporary visual artists, exhibition previews & launches.
For starters an offer of bite-sized open studios of selected artists’ work, followed by Intersections, a group exhibition curated by Will Marshall, featuring artists who make work relating to their identity and sense of self. The exhibition challenges us to reject division, and instead recognise the common ground that we share. Exhibiting artists include Omid Asadi, Lindsey Bull, Jez Dolan, Sadé Mica, Ruth Murray, Linnet Panashe Rubaya, Deshna Shah, Chester Tenneson and Alistair Woods.
The exhibition continues Saturdays 12 pm- 4pm, or other times by appointment until the 2nd of July.
This will be followed by the launch of Division of Labour’s new gallery alongside the unveiling of Paradise Works’ new Unit 2 ground floor studio expansion.
At 7.30pm there will be a performance by Richard Shields, a satirical dramatisation of the struggles faced by artists as they balance life and work and social media as they vie for a ‘seat at the table'. Click here for more information.
The day is then closed with a party to celebrate Paradise Works’ 5th birthday - with a commissioned performance by Richard Shields, film screenings by Paradise Works studio artists, a DJ, donations bar, street food and cake.
This celebratory evening is a chance to meet and see the work of artists and curators living and working in the cities of Salford and Manchester today.
