Beacons: Flare at Caustic Coastal, Salford 8 February — 3 March 2018 Entrance is free

Presented by Caustic Coastal, Beacons is a programme of three exhibitions, talks, workshops and an accompanying publication with interconnecting threads and tangents exploring our relationships with ourselves and each other within the framework of cyclical time and feminist legacies. Pharos, Flare and Signs seek to communicate our experiences of time, existence and our bodies through empathetic exchanges with objects, emotional archives, traces left in artefacts; imagining futures and resurfacing histories.

Flare will feature the work of artists Tai Shani, Jenkin van Zyl, Amshu Chukki, Liv Fontaine. Fontaine will give a performance of ‘Cold Whore Crisis’ during the exhibition preview on Thursday 8 February at 7.30pm.
