Millennialism at Paradise Works

Millennialism at Paradise Works, Salford 12 — 26 October 2019 Entrance is free

Millennialism at Paradise Works is a group exhibition that asks what the experience of becoming an artist is in ‘the era of the millennial’, featuring work by Chris Alton, Shy Bairns, Alexander Glass, Richard Hughes, Lilli Mathod, Jade Monsterrat, Karanjit Panesar, Emily Pope, TV Babies and Romily Alice Walden. The show examines the social, political, cultural and financial factors that continue to change the landscape of art today, and how a generation has responded to and unravelled the ways both art, and ourselves, can be understood.

Despite media parody and negativity, Millennials have been responsible for so many shifts in our collective consciousness. They invented wokeness, began social action online, softened mental health, and shaped the internet. Millennials are making more than just memes. With the exhibition and its public programme, we ask, what is the relevance of millennial art, and could it be our next great ‘ism’?
