All That Is Solid Melts Into Air

Adrian Street and his father, 1973

Jeremy Deller, Procession

Talk with Ed Hall

Saturday 12 October
11am-12.30pm,  free.

As part of the Manchester Weekender and tying in directly with Jeremy Deller, we will also be hosting a talk by banner maker Ed Hall covering art, working class traditions and politics.

When architect Ed Hall first started applying his design skills to making protest banners for political marches he had little idea that years later his works would hang in public galleries and feature in exhibitions around the world. Indeed, Hall’s work is usually to be seen hanging alongside traditional banners in Manchester’s very own People’s History Museum; today his brand new commission for the Jeremy Deller exhibition, All That Is Solid Melts Into Air will be on show for the first time. Join Ed Hall for a mid-morning chat about an unlikely career, the tradition of banner making and its contemporary relevance. 11am-12.30pm, Saturday 12 October, free. Read more about the event at Creative Tourist.
