Case Studies, The John Rylands Library

July 6, 2015

I’m very pleased to be showing work alongside Nina Chua, Dennis Whiteside and Richard Shields in the display cases of the Historic Reading Room at John Rylands.

Case Studies, curated by John Lynch is part of Manifest Arts Festival – 10.7-12.7.

Each artist has made work using the display cases as their starting point.  Case Studies continues until 27.9

    I’ll try and visit this weekend. So much going on in Manchester at the moment its hard to keep up, but great.
