Our new group exhibition The Return of Memory continues this week, featuring work from a selection of artists curated by Anya Harrison, Sarah Perks and Olya Sova. Unofficial histories, suppressed memories and strategies of resistance all converge in the exhibition, seeking to redress the legacy of the Russian Revolution on its centenary by exploring how contemporary artists are responding to the state of the ‘New East’ today.
Our next HOME Projects exhibition is now open in the Granada Foundation Galleries, offering a fascinating look behind the scenes at Altrincham-based puppet makers Mackinnon & Saunders as part of Manchester Animation Festival. Ian Mackinnon and Peter Saunders are the team behind an incredible range of characters, having worked on Bob the Builder, Postman Pat and The Clangers, as well as collaborating with Tim Burton on Mars Attacks!, Frankenweenie and Corpse Bride, and with Wes Anderson on Fantastic Mr Fox. Mackinnon & Saunders: Origins runs until Sun 7 Jan 2018.
