Tim Isherwood: Please Use The Intercom at The Portico Library, Chinatown 24 November — 21 December 2016 Entrance is free

Throughout 2016, Salford University lecturer and mixed-media printmaker Tim Isherwood undertook a residency at The Portico Library, considering the systems and procedures prevalent in the space, from the cataloguing of its titles to the care and protection of aged publications. Drawing on these observations, he has produced a set of new works across a variety of print, design and collaborative processes. These responses will be displayed from Friday 25th November to Wednesday 21st December in our central gallery space alongside library artefacts, a new limited edition print publication and mixed-media pieces with fellow North West artists Katherine Beefheart and John Powell Jones.
