Industrialised Exhibition: Art in Manufacturing in the Gallery

Commencing on Saturday 15th June - Saturday 14th September 2019 at Blackburn Museum & Art Gallery Industrialised Exhibition: Art in Manufacturing in the Gallery

Industrialised is an exhibition of artists featuring contemporary reflections on the rich layers and stories of making and manufacturing, and the human stories of these factory workforces, seen through the lens of eleven multi-disciplinary international artists.

An opportunity to recognise the powerful links between manufacturing industries and artists. Artists have continued to rely on the skills of fabricators, forgers, casters and welders to realise their creative works and place them in the public view. Artists from Lowry to Rauschenberg have been heavily inspired by the visual imagery of factories and the humanity of the industry working inside them. Industrialised is a showcase of contemporary artists and current approaches to working with, or reflecting on these same subject matters, and in this we see a new set of social commentaries on industries deeply resonant effect on global and local politics, social structures and our environment today.

Indistrialised will open at The National Festival of Making, and will run until Saturday 14 September 2019.

Featured Artists: Jasleen Kaur, Charles Freger, Mandy Payne, Kate Haywood

With: Andre Stitt, Chrisoula Kostankakou, Karen Mathison, Pascal Ungerer, Sue Rossiter, Zoe Robertson, Jason Taylor, Maria Kapajeva, Katie Watson

Curator:  Alex Zawadzki
