Progress at Rogue Artists’ Studios for Manchester Histories Festival 2016
4-26th June 2016
Progress is a site specific exhibition featuring the works of eleven contemporary artists in the evocative surrounds of the grade two-listed Crusader Works. The exhibition marks Rogue Artists’ Studio’s final year at Crusader Mill following the building’s recent purchase and forthcoming development. New and selected works by 11 members of Rogue Artists’ Studios consider the building’s transitional state and the industrial heritage of the surrounding landscape.
The exhibition coincides with Manchester Histories Festival will invite Manchester residents to view the works in the context of Crusader Mill, offering an increasingly rare opportunity to visit one of Manchester’s undeveloped mills. The exhibition launches with special performances and film screenings on Saturday 4th June, 1-3pm.

Castlefield Gallery, Manchester, 13th – 22nd February 2015
Castlefield Gallery is delighted to announce its next Launch Pad exhibition will be For Posterity, curated by CG Associate member Lucy Harvey, and including work by Rosanne Robertson, Richard Proffitt, Cherry Tenneson, Fliss Quick, Hannah Leighton-Boyce, and Lucy Harvey.
The exhibition will bring together six artists working across sculpture, installation, film and performance who utilise the chaotic and evidential qualities of material processes within their work. The show examines how artists explore authorship through the production of their work, using improvisation, chance encounter, manipulation and appropriation of materials and processes to record themselves or fictitious others.
