INTERRUPTIONS: Foreign Investment at The Holden Gallery

INTERRUPTIONS: Foreign Investment at The Holden Gallery, Manchester 10 October 2019 Entrance is free — Visit now

HAPPY HOUR! is an interactive live art event inspired by weather reports, swinging between normality and crisis mode in the summer of 2019, a summer of surging temperatures, burning tundra, deforestation and rapidly melting Greenland ice. The empty space of the Holden Gallery will provide the backdrop to a dance session, provocations and interruptions. In addition to the visuals and sound, vexed questions will be posed around the problems of making art in times of impending disaster

The artist collective Foreign Investment was co-founded in 1998 by Brigitte Jurack and Alma Tischlerwood. Foreign Investment seeks to create situations where artists, audiences and participant communities come together to question the value of things in unexpected ways.
