James Roper: Metanoia

A solo exhibition by Manchester based artist James Roper brings together the artists most recent painting, drawing and digital art into the gallery space at Waterside.

Meaning ‘to change one’s mind’ Metanoia describes the state the artist intends to invoke in the viewer, a visual form of limbo where the perceptual shift between abstraction and figurative art is in constant flux.

During the exhibition there will be 3 workshops that will give audiences an opportunity to discover more about the artists’ process and personally delve into practices that inform Roper’s artistic vision.

    group exhibition: All Work and All Play at air gallery

    At the forefront of this exhibition is the impulse to investigate or play. Taking inspiration from art movements from the 1960’s onwards, we have commissioned 27 UK artists working predominantly in sculpture. These will be interactive sculptures that explore our relationship to art objects and question how we conduct ourselves in a gallery setting and public spaces. Taking place as part of Manifest Arts Festival, we want to create a dialogue between spaces through active audience engagement, live events and workshops. This will be a fully immersive experience that encourages our curiosity and inner child to be unleashed and generate new narratives on what sculpture can be.

    Exhibition ends 20th July

    solo exhibition: Why Be Exotic In Private? by artist jenny steele at rogue artists studios

    ‘Why Be Exotic In Private? is a solo installation by artist Jenny Steele, which is the result of her research into South Beach Miami’s 1930’s ‘Seaside Moderne’ architecture which was inspired by the long sweeping streamlined curves and details of ocean liners and the International Modernist style. In addition to recording the formal and decorative elements of the buildings, Steele explored the social history of the largest area of coastal art deco architecture built internationally. The installation was Steele’s first solo exhibition in London at The Foundry Gallery, Chelsea from December 2018 – March 2019, and is touring to Rogue Project Space, Manchester in June 2019.

    Exhibition ends 29th June
