Castlefield Gallery presents Logical Song, Rowland Hill’s first major solo exhibition. Exploring the aesthetics of 1990s Eurodance music, club culture and local fairgrounds, Hill will transform the gallery into an immersive installation which sits between an attraction and an exhibition. Visitors will be invited to enter spaces that move them from the private and domestic to the theatrical and communal, embarking them upon a destabilising journey through a fantasised past to a darker, speculative future.

Exhibition continues: 4 February — 3 March 2024

Castlefield Gallery is excited to present the first major UK solo exhibition by Omid Asadi. The exhibition will feature new large scale sculptural work by Asadi exploring loss, memory and belonging.

Contrast runs through both the materials and the thinking in Asadi’s work. Throughout this exhibition, gentle and harsh materials will be brought together. Like fragments of the past that linger in our minds, solid, stable and enduring objects mix with ephemeral matter, resembling the fragile nature of recollection. Asadi hopes this exhibition will be ‘… a testament to the power of human resilience, creativity, and the everlasting longing to reclaim a sense of belonging even when the physical spaces have disappeared’ Asadi (2023).

Exhibition continues: 15 October 2023 — 21 January 2024.

The Covid-19 pandemic has had an enormous impact on all of us, transforming the way we live, work and socialise. Open Eye Gallery and Chester and Cheshire West Council are working with residents and communities from across the borough to reflect on this time and preserve their thoughts for future generations in a project called Covid-19 Reflections.

Artists and photographers Ciara Leeming, Tadhg Devlin and Sam Ivin have been working with communities to capture their experiences. The result can be seen in the windows of Castlefield Gallery New Art Spaces: Chester until 21 September 2023.

It will then tour at Open Eye Gallery on their exterior wall and in their cafe area from 29th September to 23rd December 2023 and at Theatre Porto in Ellesmere Port for a one-day event on 23rd October.

📣 A Call to Action!

Can you help support people affected by the Morocco earthquake?

On Friday 8 September, a 6.8 magnitude earthquake struck Morocco and was followed by a significant aftershock. The epicentre was in the High Atlas Mountains, south of Marrakesh. Some of the worst affected areas are remote and mountainous, making them hard to reach.

Thousands have died, many more are critically injured. Hundreds of thousands are displaced from their homes, without access to water, food, or shelter.

We are calling for action in support of the people of Morocco.

Over 2022-23, The Poetics of Water artist Jessica El Mal worked over extended periods to develop new works in the exhibition with many collaborators in Morocco.
Today, she asks that you consider donating to Moroccan lead organisations on the ground, for example Moroccan Biodiversity and Livelihood’s Association (MBLA), Banque Alimentaire Morocco, Amal Women’s Training Center, or a non-profit on the ground who have launched a relief fund to support the victims of earthquake in the affected areas in El Haouz region, where the epicentre is.

Please donate today! However small your support can make a big difference.
👉 You can donate to Amal’s fund at https://www.paypal.com/donate/?hosted_button_id=NRKYCU8N75LL8
👉 or you can donate to Banque Alimentaire at https://banquealimentaire.ma

If you're attending the Taghounja Listening party on 17th September, please note that the artists taking part in the event have expressed the wish that their fees are directed towards supporting the people of Morocco affected by the earthquake.
Castlefield Gallery will also be donating all proceeds from ticket sales for the event to Amal's fund

👉 If you wish to learn more about Jessica's work, you can come and visit The Poetics of Water at Castlefield Gallery until it closes on Sunday 24 September.
Alternatively, you can watch a filmed introduction to the exhibition in which Jessica talks about her artistic process and her work in Morocco on our website: https://www.castlefieldgallery.co.uk/event/hybrid-futures-the-poetics-of-water/

Our Digital Decarb day back in April included a fantastic workshop with Canadian researcher Anne Pasek about the flow of information from data centres to your computer. Anne’s now built on that workshop to make a zine, Getting Into Fights With Data Centers; OR – A Modest Proposal For Reframing The Climate Politics of ICT.

The zine delves into the world of data centres and the issues around them, including their huge demand for water and electricity. For those of you curious about where the Castlefield Gallery website is hosted, the zine includes a step-by-step guide to tracing website hosting using www.castlefieldgallery.co.uk as an example.

Three exciting exhibitions are coming up this week in Castlefield Gallery New Art Spaces: Chester!

📅 28 July – 1 September
📍 Castlefield Gallery New Art Spaces: Chester, Grosvenor Shopping Centre, St Michael’s Square.

👉 Picturing High Streets. Suzanne St Clare and Chester traders. For the past two and a half years photographic artist Suzanne St Clare has been working with business owners trading on the historical ‘Rows’ in Chester. Together they’ve been chatting about how these business owners came to Chester, their community, challenges, the quirkiness of independent trading and their love and passion for this beautiful, historic city. This display will tour to Open Eye Gallery in Liverpool later this year from 28 September.

👉 Reclaim. Suzanne St Clare and residents of Chester. Working with Chester Pride, photographer Suzanne St Clare discussed experiences of lockdown and hopes for the cultural future of the city with the Chester LGBTQ+ community. Together, they considered whether the time for retail-led regeneration had passed, and the notion of reclaiming – for the city and themselves.

👉 Picturing High Streets. Ciara Leeming and the Spider Project. Over a period of several months, members used photography to observe the city with fresh eyes – and this process led to discussions about their personal experiences of the area. These ranged from seeing the Rows as a haven for young people or those wanting to escape the bustle of the high street down below, to memories of lockdown and feelings of alienation. The collaborative sessions were facilitated by photographer Ciara Leeming, and run in partnership with Open Eye Gallery and Cheshire West and Chester Council.

If you enjoyed our current exhibition ‘The Poetics of Water’, don’t miss ‘Leviathan: From the Forest to the Sea’ by Shezad Dawood at Touchstones Rochdale ! The exhibition, which is also part of Hybrid Futures, premieres the latest episode in Shezad Dawood’s epic film series, Leviathan Cycle. It also features a series of existing Leviathan works such as ‘The Trouble with Lichen’ (2019), which depicts the Fogo Island rugged landscape as well as the lichen and mosses that inhabit it.

Shezad Dawood is not the only artist who worked with lichen:
On Saturday 19 August 12-3pm, artist Gregory Herbert will lead an event in which the participants will explore what lichen grows in the surrounding area of Castlefield Gallery and what that tells us about the air quality of Manchester. If you want to join him, book your tickets on eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/winnowing-phase-augmented-reality-walk-with-gregory-herbert-tickets-680131681167 !

About Castlefield Gallery

“Castlefield Gallery is the centre to the periphery, which in my thinking is the best position to work from and where I want to be. Castlefield Gallery oozes with explorers and pioneers, and understands that the currency of a scene is its ability to import and export culture, not sit stagnant in its own melting pot.” Ryan Gander OBE, Castlefield Gallery Artist Patron

Established by artists in 1984, Castlefield Gallery is the first public contemporary visual art gallery to have opened in Manchester. The arrival of Castlefield Gallery in the city was a significant catalyst of what became a period of rapid cultural growth, and the increase of the presence of visual artists in the city and city region. As a registered charity, our mission drives our work to focus on artistic and career development for artists, as well as deepening audiences’ relationship to contemporary art. Over the last three decades we have become an integral part of the North of England’s cultural fabric and a vital support to artists across the North West and further afield.

Castlefield Gallery delivers a programme of exhibitions, projects and events from our main gallery in central Manchester, whilst also commissioning, curating and producing off-site and public art, national and international artist residencies, and exchange programmes. We export art and culture developed and produced in the region through exchange so as to enable meaningful relationships between artists both nationally and internationally to flourish over extended periods of time.

Partnership is at the heart of everything we do, in the last year alone our work has delivered exchanges and residencies for artists between the region, and Glasgow, London, Budapest, Geneva, South Korea (Busan and Gwangju), and Prague.
