Division of Labour concludes Rogue Project Space’s 2016 artistic programme by drawing on Manchester’s relationship to industry. Spaces which have enabled artistic and industrial production are now being developed or demolished as the city expands. This redevelopment marks a monumental shift in the city’s identity as it begins to re-brand itself as a place for presentation and professional habitation. Newly commissioned works by Robin Megannity, Jenny Steele, Jenny Walker and Helen Wheeler explore the purpose and place of production in the city, and the commercial landscape which threatens to exclude it from its future.
