The theme ‘Archives at Play’ explores our relationship with the past and, from this, our connection with the future. Artists showcasing their work include Gregory Herbert, Kelly Jayne Jones, Dr. Yan Wang Preston and Chester Tenneson. Interestingly, some of the artists have developed work based on objects and recordings from Castlefield Gallery’s own 37-year history.
