Castlefield Gallery presents a lively and exuberant exhibition of the work of Nina Chua and Daniel Silver, part of an ongoing series of two person shows.
Chua invited Silver, an artist working at the forefront of contemporary figurative sculpture, to show a group of recent ceramic figures alongside a new set of her large-scale abstract drawings on paper.

Both artists work with materials in an intuitive, exploratory way leaving expression to the material itself. Silver’s figures seem to emerge from the clay, which plays a significant part in shaping the work, while the form of Chua’s drawings is determined as much by the qualities of paper and her use of marker pens as by her own hand.
Yet above all, bringing the work of Chua and Silver together emphasises something deeply human rooted in this manipulation of materials – in the physicality of making a mark or shaping the clay – that connects the work beyond its respective formal concerns and the notions of the abstract or figurative. The incidental similarities and contrasts between each artist’s approach offer an incentive to think afresh about the ‘touch of the artist’s hand’ and the traces it leaves, not merely on the surfaces of their works, but also on our thoughts and perceptions as we view the work.

Join artists Ivy Kalungi, Matthew Bamber and our curator Matthew Pendergast for a tour of our exhibition: Matthew Bamber and Ivy Kalungi.

The exhibition includes new work by Kalungi and Bamber, two artists who explore how images, objects and bodies hold memories of both personal and social histories. Seen together the works of these two artists speak both of trauma but also about the possibility for care, patience and understanding one another. The exhibition will include large scale sculptural works, alongside video work and digital collage.

As part of Castlefield Gallery and Manchester School of Art’s long-standing partnership activity, Kalungi and Bamber’s work was selected from an open call to MA/MFA Fine Art and MA/MFA Painting Graduates from Manchester School of Art, at Manchester Metropolitan University, who graduated in the last 10 years (2011 onwards). They were selected by guest selector and artist, Hardeep Pandhal, Castlefield Gallery Curator & Deputy Director, Matthew Pendergast, and Programme Leader of MA/MFA Fine Art at Manchester School of Art, Ian Rawlinson.

Join us for an evening of live performance and video screening on Thursday 8 September, 6-8pm!

✨ WAYS OF BEING TOGETHER

Part of Peer to Peer 2022, Castlefield Gallery is working with Hong Kong Arts Centre to co-present the work of six artists: online on the Peer to Peer festival website (live 26 Sep – 9 Oct) and through two live events (Castlefield Gallery Sep 8 and HKAC Sep 16).

Artists:
• Karen Yu – Omid Asadi
• Lazarus Chan – Kelly Jane Jones
• Kong Kee – John Powell-Jones

The artists were put into pairs and invited to get to know each other’s work. During the two events the artists who will be physically present in their home cities will stand in for those that are absent, in an attempt to embody their work for the audience. The aim of this project is to help the artists contextualise and communicate their work to a distant audience and to explore ways of connecting, exchanging and being together – on and off screen.

Chewing The Fat is a series of discussions curated by James Mathews-Hiskett unpacking diverse curatorial perspectives from across the North-West. Each discussion brings together a small group of curators based in the region to consider how a range of different approaches and frameworks influence the way they work. These discussions form a short series of podcasts that were released throughout July.

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.
