Dreams Without Frontiers

So I’m lapping up the merits of working in Manchester.

OK, so it hasn’t been the glamour and glitz of a metropolis, but at lunch I get to do things like this:





I work just around the corner from the Manchester Art Gallery, and stumbled across the wonderful ‘Dreams Without Frontiers’ exhibition. If you’re a big fan of The Smiths or just like to bask in the beauty of urban decay, being blasted with ‘Asleep’, then this one’s for you.

This bleak display of seventies architecture takes up only a small corner of the gallery, but it’s a definite must-see. Showcasing the work of two artists, Cyprien Gaillard and Kelley Walker, the exhibition uses a combination of post-industrial images and popular vinyl to explore the human impact on landscape.

I was blown away by the room and the ghostly video installation. Whether you’re a Smiths fan or not, this is something well-worth seeing, so be quick!

Exhibition closes at the end of May so get there quick! (Images from Manchester Confidential)
