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!
Video from the launch night.
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.
