Call for submissions – Colour Block the Link
February 1, 2012

Colour Block the Link

We’re going to take last year’s colour blocking fashion and apply it creatively to the Link Gallery in a curated exhibition on 27th February – 2nd March.

We are looking for textiles or works on paper which are predominantly one colour, or combination of two colours, which we can display so as to colour the Link Gallery into a bold exhibition. The work does not have to be an item of clothing, it just needs to be bold and colourful!

Please submit a photo of your textile or paper-based work including dimensions to mmulinkgallery@hotmail.co.uk by 8pm Tuesday 14th February.

You must be available to install your work from midday Friday 24th February and take it down again at the end of the exhibition the following Friday.

Call for submissions : The Secret Life
October 26, 2011

This is a call for submissions with a surreal/dreamlike theme for an exhibition at the Link Gallery 7th-11th November. The work can be in any medium that fits into the theme. Please send photos (or stills if film based) of the completed work together with dimensions, a short description, and any special install requirements you may have by the submission deadline of Tuesday 1st November to mmulinkgallery@hotmail.co.uk

The exhibition will be curated but you must be available to install your own work at midday Friday 4th November.

This is a show with a very short window of time for submissions, so don’t delay! I really look forward to viewing the work that is sent through.

A new year at the Link Gallery
October 7, 2011

It’s been a long summer indeed, but now the Link Gallery is back for another year of exhibitions! The layout of the foyer space has changed now that the stairs have been removed, so we now have even more wall space to play with.

I (Elisa Artesero) will continue to be the curator of the gallery; however I am looking for a small team of volunteers from the Interactive Arts course (particularly our new first years) with an interest in curating who would like to help with the running of the gallery this year. I will post more information a little later, but if any students from the course would like to get in touch with an expression of interest please email mmulinkgallery@hotmail.co.uk

The gallery is also now open for submissions to artists from any degree. Along with the more traditional mediums of work, I am keen to open up the space for more unusual proposals; be it for film, events, theatre, fashion or music to ensure another eclectic year of exhibitions. Do not worry if this is your first exhibition, I will work with you, all I ask is for a certain level of ambition for the use of the space.

So, please email me at mmulinkgallery@hotmail.co.uk for a proposal form.

Manchester School of Art Degree Show
June 12, 2011

It’s getting close to that time of year again; when the final year art students are feeling a mixture of nerves and excitement as they finish installing their artwork for the Manchester School of Art Degree show. This year the Link Gallery is hosting work from the Fine Art Print degree, however don’t just stop by the Link, the whole school is full to the brim of exhibitions from so many different degree courses! Make sure to check out the Holden Gallery with work from the Interactive Arts degree, it’s sure to be a varied exhibition from some very talented artists.

The preview is Friday 17th June, with the public view from Saturday 18th June through to Wednesday 22nd June, so if you’re in Manchester or visiting during that time, make sure to pop by.

Interactive Arts 1st Year Show

The start of this term sees the culmination of the year for first year Interactive Arts students in the form of a final exhibition.

There will be a closing event on Thursday 12th May from 4.30pm  -6.30pm.

Here is a small selection of what there is to see:

Call for submissions: Blue Link
March 20, 2011

This is a call out for submissions with a blue theme for an exhibition at the Link from 4th – 8th April. The work can be of any medium but must have a dominant blue colour to it. Please send photos of the completed work you wish to install, together with dimensions and any special install requirements you may need by the submission deadline of 26th March to mmulinkgallery@hotmail.co.uk.

The exhibition will be curated by me (Elisa Artesero) but you will be required to install your own work, so must be available to do this at midday on Friday 1st April.  I look forward to receiving your submissions for what I hope to be a brilliant end to this term at the Link Gallery.

Generic: Fashion for Art’s Sake
January 23, 2011

This week’s exhibition includes work from 2nd Year Fashion Students from the Manchester School of Art and is the vision of Rebecca Stant and Ryan Higgins. Here is their statement:

“The body of work displayed is in response to a brief where students were asked to look at three ‘generic’ garments and bring in their own concepts to create an outfit.

From night dresses to wetsuits, tailored suit jackets and brogue shoes, many different garments are used to fuse imagination as well as historical and technical information gained.

A huge source of influence for both the students and the exhibition layout itself was the Maison Martin Margiela Exhibition held at Somerset House Summer 2010. The exhibition aims to explore the realm of fashion and art, using the garments to suggest that fashion is more closely linked to art than it is suggested.”
