'She Laughs' at Nexus Art Cafe, Manchester

Some more info on the 'She Laughs' exhibition in Manchester, which I have a few drawings on display at, starting this Friday - come along for the opening night if you're in the neighbourhood:

SHE LAUGHS 11th September – 21st October 2009

Opening Friday 11th September 7 – 9 with performance

What does humour do, what does it say or can it simply function as something to be enjoyed?

Nexus is constantly changing & developing the ways in which it approaches visual art. Not being a ‘white cube’ adds a number of things to the work that is shown in the space & this exhibition, designed by Liz Gaunt & Dylan Thomas takes that forward in its installation. This space has been transformed as a heightened reflection of its Northern Quarter surroundings. There are many visual references to the shabby chic vintage shops & record stores all around making this exhibition something familiar. The visitors to this show know how to flick through records & are welcome to use the same action with the 12’ mounted pieces. Like there rest of the northern quarter enjoying the comfort of nostalgia, rummaging through like old records, absorbing their images the way you might next door or across the road.'
