For Posterity - Castlefield Gallery

Started: 2nd Feb 2015 | Ended: 2nd Feb 2015

For Posterity - Castlefield Gallery
Launch Evening: Thursday 12th February, 6-8pm
Open: Wed-Sun, 13 - 22nd February, 1-6pm

Bankley studio holder and CG Associate member Lucy Harvey has been selected to curate Castlefield Gallery's next Launch Pad exhibition. The exhibition will include works by Rosanne Robertson, Richard Proffitt, Cherry Tenneson, Fliss Quick, Hannah Leighton-Boyce, Lucy Harvey.

The exhibition title is drawn from Harvey’s research into traditional crafts and Burnley-based filmmaker, Sam Hanna’s documentaries (1940-80) which, in his own words, depict “old English crafts captured for posterity”. For Posterity brings together six artists whose practice engages with chance, failure and the functions of objects. Working across sculpture, installation, film and performance they present the transformative ways in which artists invent and reinterpret history, place and language.

An exhibition Curated by Elizabeth Wewiora and Matthew Pendergast at TOAST

Exhibition work by: Nicky Bird, Andrew Bracey, David Gledhill, Katie Goodwin, Martin Hamblen, Tobby Huddlestone, Kwong Lee, Niall Macdonald, Claire Tindale and Poppy Whatmore

Hankering for Classification presents new and existing work by ten artists from across the UK, who employ methods of classification, archiving and collecting. The exhibition will also include bespoke exhibition design developed by artist Poppy Whatmore.

Through the experience of differences and relations between things, we determine the meaning they have for us. In a variety of mediums including sculpture, performance, painting and video the artists in this exhibition carry out our shared compulsion to organize, record and curate the world around us, with a will to make sense of it. Whatmore’s reworking of traditional exhibition design will visually and physically connect the art works together emphasizing the nature of an exhibition as a careful arrangement of art works, which contain their own contexts and histories but are also related to one another and the viewer.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a series of events including: Artists video screenings, talks and workshops. For a full list of programmed events please check:

The project has been in two parts where Community Artist Stacey Coughlin and volunteers from Arc have visited the homes and organisations involved to create artwork that has then been used to create an 'immersive and interactive' temporary art gallery space. This gallery then has visited all the groups involved and now will be making a landing at Stockport Art Gallery!
