The Holden Gallery is delighted to present Simeon Barclay’s first solo exhibition in Manchester. Barclay – whose work operates at the intersection of contemporary art, fashion, music and popular culture – will present a survey of existing work alongside new work which will include a response to the historic collections at Manchester School of Art.
Barclay will produce new work in response to the North West Film Archive and the Slide Library at the Visual Resource Centre, both part of the Library Services Special Collections at Manchester Metropolitan University. The exhibition title Life Room was inspired by the film A Visit to An Art School, made in 1929 and based at Manchester School of Art, which is in the North West Film Archive.
