We shall be attending this exciting looking event on Thursday, get down for some arty goodness!
Bench proudly present ‘All in the Wrist’ – 15th November – 8th December 2012
Curated by Manchester’s very own Moot, All in the Wrist brings together a collection of cardboard chaos from some of the North West’s finest artists.
Featuring works by Tasha Whittle, TJ “KREK” Dolan, Lottie Smith and Tea One.
A ‘no rules’ ethos applies to the exhibition. Incorporating a mix of styles from illustration, sculpture and graffiti, All in the Wrist gives rise to a whole host of techniques all brought together by one mesmerising medium of choice; cardboard.
The Bench gallery, a previously disused basement of the newly launched Bench Concept store in Manchester’s Northern Quarter, provides an innovative backdrop to this fantastic exhibition.
The exhibition launches with a private view evening Thursday 15th November, with music from Saber T and complimentary drinks courtesy of Jameson Irish Whiskey.
To RSVP for the private view, please get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org

As mentioned earlier (here), last Thursday the Dirt Cheap team took a trip down to the Bench NQ store in Manchester for the launch of the Don’t Panic exhibition…
Mural in the Bench store, the store itself is pretty nice looking with some interesting displays.
The event took place in the Self Made Gallery, below the store. A nice, fairly large space with plenty of white wall space!

WARNING – NSFW – CONTAINS NUDITY!
As well as showcasing some of the best Don’t Panic posters from over the years the Private View also had live Life Drawing and music. A half naked model posed with Samurai sword, fans and feathers whilst some of Manchester’s finest, including Hammo & Benjamino drew quick sketches. The DJ, Rich Reason, played some pretty dope tunes all night with a mix of Hip-Hop, Funk and Soul.
The artwork was displayed with plenty of space and the room was nicely lit, it was good to get a look at some of the work I had never seen before… particular favourites were Hammo’s and Eelus also French artist C215 who was featured in a past Dirt Cheap Mag.
Their was a great turn out from local artists, students, and photographers and a well stocked bar! I can’t wait to get down to another event there, as there promises to be an exciting and varied program in the future.
Shamefully I even came home with spare drinks tokens… Am I getting old or something?
If you want to see the actual artwork you will have to get down there and see it in the flesh!
The exhibition runs from 19th of October – 12th November. At Bench NQ, Manchester.

Impressive, dominating and beautiful sculptural forms rise from the floor or hang, motionless in midair.
Just another day
Yun-Woo Choi works with recycled magazines and papers to create this large scale and quite beautiful pieces, halfway between architectural and biological in appearance.
Just another day
Viewed as a whole there is something cell like, under the microscope; whilst larger portions could be sprawling, coloured metropolises from some distant future.
You can see more of his work here.
First seen here.

Throughout my time at University, I have continued to learn motion, animation and 3D design amongst other things. I also have a very keen interest in music and I love exploring the link between sound and visuals. When writing my dissertation, I explored the history of music video and discussed the idea of it becoming a ‘hot media’. I also explored the idea of holism within music. Holism is the theory that a whole, is greater than the sum of all its parts. My reading of Deleuze emphasises contingent holism and suggests that Deleuzian multiplicity should be seen micro-holisticaly. That is to say, music contains multiple instances of holism in the form of genres, with each genre having different conditions around its own emergence and also possible sub genres. FourScreen is my final project – an installation exploring holism with music providing a visual interactive experience.code
