Completely A Hustling Place at Manchester Central Library, Manchester, 21 October–31 December 2021, free entry

This autumn Venture Arts presents a full studio exhibition at Manchester Central Library, where you can experience brand new work from over 70 artists. A truly multimedia show, ‘Completely A Hustling Place’ includes photography, ceramics, dreamy audio, textiles, real genies, illustration, the best TV channel ever, proper superheroes, projection mapping and much more, offering an exciting and immersive showcase of creativity and studio output over the past year.

A massive celebration of creative triumph through times of adversity, Completely A Hustling Place takes its name from a description of the vibrant and buzzing city of Manchester aptly described by artist, Justin Lees. Scenes of our city, as seen through the eyes of artist Terry Williams, whose haunting pictures taken on disposable cameras during lockdown are one of many highlights of the show. You will also encounter black superheroes brought to life by Leslie Thompson, bright cartoon characters from Jenny Franklin and embroidered bananas by Louise Hewitt, a radical new TV station presented in the video work of Michael Greave, a school desk installation by Caryn Egerton, glorious sunset pictures by Becky Hislop and projections by Amy Ellison. You can experience a unique, projection mapping collaboration by Malik Jama, Raven Keating and Fred Collins, screenings of film and animated work, an interactive sound and ceramic installation by Adam Crichton and Anthony Whitfield and embroidery cluster collaboration including work by Christine Blackburn.
