5 July – 22 September 2013
We kick off the residency with the opening of our first show
Under the Influence
5 July – 11 August 2013
Private View Thurs 4 July 18:30 – 20:30
Under the Influence presents masters who have had a key influence, and awoken things within each of the Manifold artists, whether or not they knew it at the time. This collection of artists, makers, musicians, teachers, writers and family members provides solid foundation to Manifold’s takeover of Siobhan Davies Studios this summer, offering a triangulation point between their influences, the place, and the work made during their stay. Objects, artworks and creative responses represent Gary Hume, Quentin Blake, Eduardo Paolozzi, Martin Smith, Alison Britton, Stephen Dixon, Colette Dobson, family, friends and anonymous muses.
“it is necessary to have a master who by his teaching and precepts stirs and awakens the moral virtues whose seed is enclosed and buried in our souls.” Baldesar Castiglione – Italian Renaissance courtier and author
