Exhibition: 'Bus2Move' by artist Simeon Barclay at The Turnpike, Leigh
In his first institutional solo exhibition in the North West, Simeon Barclay presents a new body of work informed by research into dance. From the visual spectacle of contemporary dance theatre to the communal experience of the nigh club dance floor, the exhibition Bus2move combines costume, film and video, photography, lighting and sound.
Barclay's interest in dance and its many facets centres on the construction of masculinity, with particular focus on the way popular perceptions and stereotypes become defined, contested and encoded upon the male body.
Exhibition dates: 14th February - 18th April
