Make every show like it’s your last, is a major exhibition of work by renowned British conceptual artist, Ryan Gander. This show is part of an international tour programme but will take on a special new form when it is staged in Manchester, presenting new work and work previously unseen in the UK.
Gander studied in Manchester for his undergraduate degree and will be illustrating his close connection to the city through new work created exclusively for us. The exhibition will explore two recent themes in Gander’s work; ‘Imagineering’ and ‘Culturefield.’ Bringing together various media to highlight the artist’s playful wit, the artworks in this exhibition will explore the relationships between author, work and viewer where the rules are constantly redefined.
