#IMTdoesMC like never before. If you think we’re exaggerating just know that this is our fifth year, and we are confident enough to say, we know our shit.
OMG, Plastique Fantastique are ready to shake Manchester again after their bomb exhibition and performance at our pals Castlefield Gallery. They’ll be fresh off their performance at the MAC Belfast as part of their contribution to the Hayward Touring exhibition Shonky, curated by John Walter. And let’s be honest, you can’t wait to see David Burrows again.
We’re also bringing some young stuff, as Newcastle-based Paola Ciarska will be here, with new works that comment on “people being people” –sooooo 2017, and as proof she's also showing at brand new artist-run gallery Goldtapped in stand 706 so check them out and see it as a preview for her upcoming show with us in December.
We’re returning with our very own Danish gal, Lotte Rose Kjær Skau, whose recent solo exhibition Medals and Poise, Energy and Praise at IMT Gallery you either ADORED or didn’t have the chance to see. Even though she’s too busy doing cool stuff like creating album covers for experimental pop bands (see Heba by Lowly), or doing residencies in off-grid treehouses (see Outlandia, Glen Nevis, Scotland), lucky for you, she also does cool fairs, so she’ll be bringing new work in silk and stainless steel.
Dallas Seitz, Maggie Roberts and Newcastle-based Luke McCreadie, will be back. Luke will be bringing #BRANDNEW work using risograph printing and angle grinding Perspex; Maggie is currently away in her exotic studio in South Africa, working on a new series of Toxic Lakes with silver, gold and fluorescent pigments, which we’re sure, will turn out sparkly in some magical Maggie Roberts way and Dallas’ American Story series is getting a new season, as he will be bringing some new, never shown before works. Both Lotte and Maggie have been selected by aspex to be part of the exhibition Emergency 2017 this December! IMT’s gonna be colourful and energized as always, come say hi! x
