Open Online – with Paradise Works in Salford
Steve Iles

Open Online at Paradise Works, Salford and online, 9 October–28 November 2020, free entry - Visit now

In place of its annual Open Studios event, Paradise Works in Salford is pleased to present Open Online 2020.

Originally planned to preview at the Manchester Contemporary 2020 (currently on hiatus due to COVID), the weekend will encompass the launch of an online shop, ‘Multiples’, and the preview of Paradise Works’ latest exhibition, Soft Display, along with an accompanying film of the exhibition by Steve Iles

‘Multiples’ features contemporary artwork by Paradise Works studio members. Each piece will be part of a limited-edition series, set at an affordable price and available to purchase. Supported by Art Council England’s Emergency Funding grant, the online shop is designed to financially support Paradise Works studio members who have lost income or work through the commissioning of new and original small scale artwork.

In the gallery space, Soft Display is a group exhibition co-curated by Division of Labour, Alistair Woods and Kieran Leach. The exhibition will explore new sculpture and a current preoccupation with the objective and subjective ‘mass of things’, presenting artwork that offers kinetic, haptic, poetic and critical reflections on ‘the soft’ and ‘the hard.’ It features work by artists Dean Kenning, Kieran Leach, Liam Fallon, Jeremy Hutchison, Priscila Fernandes, Harrison Pearce, Maisie Pritchard, Tiz Creel,  Rosie McGinn, Katrina Cowling, Andrew Lacon, Priscila Fernades, Harminder Judge, and Richard Dean Hughes.
