Buffer Zones at Paradise Works, Salford 13 July — 3 August 2019 Entrance is free

Curated by Nat Pitt (Division of Labour, The Manchester Contemporary), Buffer Zones at Paradise Works brings together the works of 13 artists in a physical commentary on the geo-political, social economic and cultural impacts of borders. The audience is invited to make a precarious journey through barricades, borders and partitions to experience the immersive exhibition. Conceived during the United Kingdom’s attempts to leave the EU, themes of division, separation of community and physical space take the fore.

Artists: include Sally Payen, Larry Achiampong & David Blandy, Edward Clydesdale Thomson, Yelena Popova, Hilary Jack, Gavin Wade, Jeremy Hutchison, Simon & Tom Bloor, James Bridle, Marco Godoy, Ella Littwitz.
