Manchester Art Gallery commissioned students from Manchester College and Xaverian College to create artworks inspired by adornment, consumerism, symbolism and taste. Art students have created work that reflects their views and comments on the world around us.Thirteen works are displayed that include craft, digital, fashion, ornament, sculpture and textile outcomes. The selected pieces connect to Matthew Darbyshire’s show An Exhibition for Modern Living and his exploration of reappropriation, either through the use of materials or progression of ideas.
The selected works will be displayed in an exhibition entitled Lifecycled, which will be taking place at Manchester Art Gallery between 5-7 January 2016.
Future Creatives is a new program, where Manchester Art Gallery creates a live brief that engages local colleges with a major exhibition.
