    Walking Tour to Salford with the Institute of Urban Dreaming
    Tuesday 30 May 2017 / 18:30pm-20:30pm

    In the long gentle (we hope) May evening the Institute of Urban Dreaming will take CG Associates members on a walking tour from Castlefield Gallery into the rapidly changing landscape of Salford; gone is the open land to the east of Regent Road, now being rapidly transformed into a landscape of high new buildings. Walk and talk with the Institute of Urban Dreaming for a discussion about regeneration, the changing city and how artists can avoid being complicit in gentrification.

    Andrew McDonald is Manchester based, teaches at the University of Central Lancashire, and is represented by The International 3. He has exhibited nationally, including with MIMA, Site Gallery, Chapter, The Grundy Gallery, and was featured in British Art Show 6. MORE
