Photographer Dr. Yan Wang Preston in-conversation with Thomas Dukes. Sunday 10 April 2022 / 3pm-4pm at Castlefield Gallery

Based in the North West, award winning photographer Dr. Yan Wang Preston develops projects with arresting visual language, investigating complex dynamics of history and society. Her new work 'English Gardens' (exhibited now at Castlefield Gallery) looks at the layers of history, and the decisions that lie behind the politics of ‘nature’ and ‘balance’. Working with forms from Chinese landscape painting, Preston uses plants brought to the UK from colonial botanists, along with instances of plants designated ‘non-native’, to tell a story of politics and power.
Limited Capacity. Pre-booking recommended. Tickets: Free (low-income) to £3. Book now at https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/dr-yan-wang-preston-in-conversation-with-thomas-dukes-tickets-275568471717

About Castlefield Gallery

“Castlefield Gallery is the centre to the periphery, which in my thinking is the best position to work from and where I want to be. Castlefield Gallery oozes with explorers and pioneers, and understands that the currency of a scene is its ability to import and export culture, not sit stagnant in its own melting pot.” Ryan Gander OBE, Castlefield Gallery Artist Patron

Established by artists in 1984, Castlefield Gallery is the first public contemporary visual art gallery to have opened in Manchester. The arrival of Castlefield Gallery in the city was a significant catalyst of what became a period of rapid cultural growth, and the increase of the presence of visual artists in the city and city region. As a registered charity, our mission drives our work to focus on artistic and career development for artists, as well as deepening audiences’ relationship to contemporary art. Over the last three decades we have become an integral part of the North of England’s cultural fabric and a vital support to artists across the North West and further afield.

Castlefield Gallery delivers a programme of exhibitions, projects and events from our main gallery in central Manchester, whilst also commissioning, curating and producing off-site and public art, national and international artist residencies, and exchange programmes. We export art and culture developed and produced in the region through exchange so as to enable meaningful relationships between artists both nationally and internationally to flourish over extended periods of time.

Partnership is at the heart of everything we do, in the last year alone our work has delivered exchanges and residencies for artists between the region, and Glasgow, London, Budapest, Geneva, South Korea (Busan and Gwangju), and Prague.
