    solo exhibition: OBR: BINARY ARCHIVE 2019 by artist Megan Cowley

    Megan Cowley is a research-based designer, specialising in waterjet and kiln formed glass. Working from information extracted from both architectural features and social history of the Old Bank, Megan transfers this information into binary data, which is then encapsulated into glass panels. In its simplest form life is a series of 1s and 0s, or ONs and OFFs. This is the ultimate symbiosis of man and machine; the binary structure of life – the inspiration for the work. Binary form relates the most to the society of now, and of the future. Binary is an integral part of our lives, like the veins of a human, binary code runs through all of technology.

    Exhibition dates 9th August - 6th September

    group exhibition: Re:flect at waterside arts

    Re:flect is an interactive experience created and curated by Chloe Knights and Ella Boston, two fresh graduates from Manchester School of Art’s Three Dimensional Design course. Together Chloe and Ella will create a ‘please do touch' experience which provides an escapism for audiences, focusing on being present and connected to the senses and to others.

    As people step into the space, they step out of the hustle and bustle of metropolitan life and allow themselves to tune in to their most mundane senses through a series of interactive objects, materials and installations.

    Exhibition dates: 19th July - 28th September

    solo exhibition: Supersymmetry by artist liam fallon at the turnpike leigh

    The Turnpike is pleased to present the first solo exhibition by artist Liam Fallon. Since graduating from Manchester School of Art in 2017, Liam has garnered praise for his bold and ambitious sculptures that explore the themes of identity, sexuality, monumentality, and the blurred boundaries between public and private spaces. He uses industrial materials such as steel, Jesmonite, rubber and wood, and adopts factory processes learnt from his father and grandmother, such as casting, welding and joinery.

    In his graduation year, Liam was awarded 2nd place in the Woon Foundation Painting and Sculpture Prize at Baltic 39 Newcastle, the Manchester Academy of Fine Art Graduate Award, and the Manchester School of Art Alumni Prize. He was also listed by The Double Negative in a shortlist of the best Fine Art Graduates, and has been the focus of feature articles by Young Artists in Conversation, and Floorr Magazine as a significant emerging talent.

    Exhibition ends 7th September
