Re: work at The Holden Gallery, Manchester 5 November — 19 December 2018 Entrance is free

In the production of anything of value, there is a requirement for work to be done. With artworks, what often receives less attention is a focus on the labour that is required and the possibilities present in the everyday materials that might be used. Re: work at The Holden Gallery in Manchester deals in the notion of transformation – the artists re-working ordinary things in order to make and think about something anew.
