🀸 School disco at our birthday event??? 🀸

⭐ We wanna see your best flame shirts πŸ”₯ and neon tutus 🧚 ... can we play musical chairs with a rig?? who knows!

⭐ Our birthday events round the corner, the exhibition has no theme. We've just invited the artists to exhibit whatever straight from their own practices! This will be interesting to curate lol

⭐ As for the music event, we couldn't help but set a theme. We are taking you waaaay back, bringing you old school disco vibes... with a twist!

⭐ As always the events powered by the heavy @mo_rhythm
soundsystem ⚑

🎭 Performance art - 21:00-21:20 TONIGHT by @evita_ziemele 🎭

⭐ Tonight in the Ballroom (big room upstairs) we have the wonderful Evita Ziemele joining us with an interesting performance for Psyche!

⭐ "Much of our identities and culture is directly assumed and forced upon us depending on our bodies, our genitalia, breasts, or no breasts. Forced cultural standard of women's bodies, male bodies, with no space for anything else to exist. The body extensions question these ideals and roles, sitting atop the body as mere clothing items to be perceived. Protruding breasts, genitalia, direct the viewer's gaze, whilst the body within is masked, unidentified."

⭐ Show the love and catch this!!

⭐ Tickets still available through the link in our bio!

☁️ @zed_in_the_clouds this Friday at Psyche! ☁️

⭐ Back in I think 2019 I met Zed in Bristol where he was exhibiting work, for years we've spoke about him coming to the mansion for one of our events and I'm buzzing that he's making the mooch up north for Psyche!

⭐ Zed specialises in large-scale mural work and installations, and also take on a lot of illustrative and design-led projects. In his personal work he tends to explore subcultural identity and the interaction between humans and their environment.

⭐ He's a man of many talents, exhibiting, hosting a pop up shop and we may even catch him live in the act this Friday!

⭐ Show him some love!!

🧠 Delving into what identity and culture' means as an exhibition topic πŸ«€

⭐ What does it mean to us as a collective?

⭐ This shoot took place in Preston where most of West first got to know eachother going to local raves and events. Its somewhere our roots lie so we went back to explore sites with this series. Making Preston bus station look as cold as ever 🀧

⭐ We encourage our guests to embrace their most authentic selves at the event, as the artists selected have done with their pieces. Express what identity and culture means in its rawest form.

Pleased to say that my work, 'Extreme Male Brain (Triptych for Simon Baron-Cohen)' will be on show at Antwerp Mansion as part of West Art Collective's Psyche event. Image: preview poster. Text reads, "I'm participating in Psyche presented by West Art Collective X Monolith. An art and music event in celebration of identity and culture. At Antwerp Mansion. 04/03/2022." The background is multicoloured, layered images including human figures and a rural landscape with trees and hills, with a dreamy, psychedelic quality.
West Art Collective - Thank you for such an amazing opportunity 😊 #manchesterartist

We had a lot of responses following this article: 'Artist Open Calls - should you be paying?' We particular like the message we received from Lucy at West Art Collective, added below. Let us know what you think - what was the most you paid for an open call? Did you receive any feedback? How did you find the process? Do you think you should be paying and if not, how else do you think the galleries should make their money? https://cottononmcr.com/2020/04/13/artist-open-calls/
Proud to be part of EXHIBITION UNCENSORED Thanks for organising this erotic exhibition.
