Jenny Steele: Why Be Exotic in Private? at Rogue Artists’ Studios, Manchester, 9–29 June 2019, free entry - Visit now

Resulting from her research into South Beach Miami’s 1930s Seaside Moderne architecture, Why Be Exotic In Private? at Rogue Artists’ Studios in Openshaw (Manchester) is a solo installation by Manchester-based artist Jenny Steele. It was inspired by the long sweeping streamlined curves and details of ocean liners and the International Modernist style. The exhibition features a series of screen-printed shaped panels that suggest temporary theatre sets. Walls of the gallery are painted in colours from the South Beach palette, which was created by artist Leonard Horowitz in the 1980s to revive the dilapidated architecture of Miami Beach.
