ALL THAT IS SOLID MELTS INTO AIR : JEREMY DELLER
Oct 12, 2013 - Jan 19, 2014
For this new Hayward Touring exhibition, launching at Manchester Art Gallery, Jeremy Deller explores the roots of working class musical culture, from 19th century industrial folk to glam and heavy rock music in the 70s and 80s. The exhibition will combine contemporary works with a vast range of objects and images, from historical paintings depicting factories and forges to oppositional broadsheets, political tracts, poems and popular ballads. Accompanied by a programme of events, performances and screenings, Deller approaches this wealth of material like a social cartographer tracing neglected ley lines of cultural history. The exhibition will include a newly commissioned film by Deller, along with banners and murals specially made for each screening.
THE VANITY OF SMALL DIFFERENCES : GRAYSON PERRY
Oct 24, 2013 - Feb 2, 2014
Grayson Perry's celebrated series of six tapestries The Vanity of Small Differences will be displayed at Manchester Art Gallery following their joint acquisition by the Arts Council Collection and the British Council. The tapestries, which were created alongside the Channel 4 television series All in the Best Possible Taste with Grayson Perry, tell the story of class mobility and the influence social class has on our aesthetic taste. Perry said that as a public artwork he hopes that "wherever it goes it not only delights the eye but also sparks debate about class, taste and British society.”
