In Praise Of Blandness invites the viewer to appreciate the aesthetic of the ordinary and the everyday.
Paper Geographies is an exhibition at Manchester Central Library that brings together 12 artists who use photography to explore the relationships between materiality and place. The expanded field of photography is represented by works that challenge the medium’s own specificity; including documentary and appropriated imagery, performance and sculpture, moving image, analogue processes, digital and 3D animation.
Manchester based Photographer David Gleave will be having his first solo Exhibition at Cass Art Manchester, Oldham street in February. It will be a retrospective of his first six years in photography from the first images he made of Vini Reilly at his house in Didsbury right up to the present day.
David was the guitar player with Manchester band The Naughty Boys who had a cult following 1978 – 1988 and as a consequence a lot of the images are of bands and musicians.
Join photographer Mario Popham and artist Tom Baskeyfield as they launch their publication, Of Flesh and Stone. The collaborative project, which examines the legacy of slate extraction in North Wales and its connection to England’s first industrial city, was first exhibited in the Granada Gallery spaces at HOME in 2018.
Cherish is an exhibition looking at our desire to document the familiar and intimate. Curated by Victoria Smith and Ted Holborn, final year Photography students at Manchester School of Art, the exhibition will take place over two days in the Link Gallery. It is the first in a series of curatorial experiments from Photography students at MMU.

The second in our series of Come and Chat events will be based around the topics of Training and Access.
1. Access, anxiety, diversity, difficulty: how can we make sure the full range of voices is heard in photography? Which ones get squeezed out?
2. Training and academia: what is the role of universities and independent training organisations? Does the growth of academic practice have unintended consequences?
