I am VERY very excited to be part of this:
The Blank Media Collective “Projector Series I, II & III”
In their own words – “Blank Media Collective champions emerging artists, writers, musicians and performers by giving them a unique platform to showcase their work.”
And true to their word, the latest project is one determined to takeover unusual and unique spaces across Manchester. The Projector Series will be spread across three locations, over three months and bring together a host of artists from different genres in a series of exhibitions, performances and installations.
More information and details can be found here at Manchester’s Finest.
From their site –
“Projector III: Installation at The King’s Arms
End of Season event on 6th September from 6pm – FREE
11 Bloom Street
Greg Thomas’s innovative work confronts viewers with an unsettling re-structuring of structures, engaging not only with the architecture, but also with our assumptions about the strength and stability of community. On the 6th September, topping off an amazing summer of Projector series exhibitions and events, people are encouraged to go along and meet the artist and the BMC team and then join Greg in what promises to be a surprising culmination of his intervention into the space at The Kings Arms.”
If you’re interested please spread the word by sharing this poster too:
The artspace is funded by members and fundraising events. We hold exhibitions from local, national and international artists and curators. We hold regular crit groups/film screenings/discussion sessions/gallery crawls. Anyone within an arts community will already know how important sessions such as these are for the surrounding communities.
Unit 3B has been expanding rapidly since it first started, and continues to grow. As it does, it requires more funding to enrich the culture and community that blossoms from it. The point of this post isn’t to brag about how great Unit 3B is, it’s to highlight the importance of funding in the arts. Small, independent galleries and studios come to depend on funding – not as a money making scheme, but to support, enhance and create platforms for local creative talent.
We have always known the importance of arts and culture in this country. Let’s not lose it now.
I’ll be showing work at the next PRISM event.
PRISM is a bi-monthly contemporary art event. Established at The Showroom Cinema in 2008 it utilises various venues across Sheffield to exhibit work by emerging and established artists. This January it continues its residency at Bank St Arts – have a look at their SITE, they do good things!
