Exhibition Publication-Mortality:Death and the Imagination

Exhibition Publication-Mortality:Death and the Imagination

Description

The subject of mortality is rarely approached head-on. More oblique strategies such as metaphor often provide a route into this difficult subject. Approaches to death can often provide an insight into cultural, social and political attitudes. Rather than using death as a blunt end-point, the publication turns its attention to mortality and the ways in which death appears (or is obscured) through being in the midst of life.

This publication includes essays by Steven Gartside (The Coffin Route) and Clive Parkinson (Present Tense); along with illustrated texts on seven major artists: Ian Breakwell, Felix Gonzales-Torres, Douglas Gordon, Julian Opie, Cornelia Parker, Bob and Roberta Smith, and Sam Taylor-Wood. The artists' diverse responses to the theme help to reflect on the formation of perceptions and attitudes, as well as the ways in which death and dying are often kept at a convenient distance.

Published alongside an exhibition at The Holden Gallery, Manchester Metropolitan University, 8 July – 16th August 2013.

A New Manchester Alphabet

£9.00

Description

A New Manchester Alphabet is an illustrated collection of new poetry.
In 1906 Roger Oldham, a member of the Manchester Society of Architects, wrote and illustrated a small booklet called A Manchester Alphabet. The Alphabet takes us on a journey around Edwardian Manchester from Ancoats to the (Bellevue) Zoo. Fast forward to 2014, and a copy of the booklet is found on the shelves at Manchester Metropolitan University’s Special Collections. A New Manchester Alphabet is a snapshot of Manchester in 2015: illustrated by students from the Manchester School of Art and written by poetry students from The Manchester Writing School. This collaboration takes us on a brand new journey around Manchester: from Afflecks, via New Islington, to Ziferblat. A New Manchester Alphabet combines both Alphabets in one book.
