Harry Meadley: 'But what if we tried?' at Touchstones Rochdale, Manchester 2 March — 1 June 2019 Entrance is free

Intrigued by the fact that visitors often ask why Touchstones Rochdale doesn’t show more of the over 1500 works in the Borough’s fine art collection, artist Harry Meadley set the gallery the challenge of attempting to display as much of the collection as possible in a single exhibition. Spanning three galleries, But what if we tried? presents the result of this attempt. As much about the process as the exhibition, the final display will also include a multi-part documentary filmed by Meadley featuring the Touchstones staff.
