  • Meanwhile See This


19 October 2012 — 4 November 2012

For the first Launch Pad exhibition, Castlefield Gallery is pleased to present Meanwhile See This organised by artists Nina Chua, Tiago Duarte, Nicola Ellis, Shona Harrison and Ana Rosa Hopkins.

Graduating from the MA Fine Art at Manchester School of Art in 2011, their work playfully explores the transfer of materials from the banal to deliberated art object evolving from a shared dialogue within their shared studio space. The artists have since pursued their practices independently and this exhibition reconnects and re-evaluates their collaborative practice.

Plataforma Revólver, Lisbon

Preview: Thursday 15 November 2012

Exhibition open until 26 January 2013



Participating artists:

Pavel Büchler, Nina Chua, Nick Crowe and Ian Rawlinson, Tiago Duarte, Nicola Ellis, Mary Griffiths, Shona Harrison, Ana Rosa Hopkins, Jo McGonigal, Fiona McKillop, Eileen O’Rouke, Richard Proffitt, Maeve Rendle, Evangelia Spiliopoulou.


The exhibition, selected from the work of recent graduates of the MA Fine Art programme at Manchester School of Art and their tutors, is an invitation to consider how artistic practices can be informed by a shared discussion and common experience played out across ten years of thinking and doing. It presents a portrait of a pedagogy developed from a debate about the nature of artistic work, characterised in the shift from the thinking through of ‘the work of art’ to a consideration of ‘the labour of art’.
