Visual Arts Exhibition Comes To Manchester

NOISEfestival.com, the award-winning national arts charity, is to host a two-week visual arts exhibition in the heart of Manchester’s youth culture quarter.

Presented in the windows of an empty retail space in Stevenson Square, where the riots recently took place, the exhibition will showcase iconic, creative, non-violent protests to mark the launch of its national, curriculum led learning project, ‘Re-Masters: The Art of Protest’.

‘The exhibition opens on 19 October and runs until 27 October’

Highlighting the art of positive and peaceful protesting, the exhibition will feature work from leading artists such as: Banksy, Turner Prize winner Gillian Wearing, Stella Vine, Katherine Hamnett’s anti-pershing missile T-shirt protest to Margaret Thatcher, leading German Artist Joseph Beuys and Thomas Peiter.

Denise Proctor, NOISE charity founder, hopes the exhibition can inspire a new generation of protest art. She said: “Over the last year protest has dominated the UK’s headlines. ‘Art of Protest’ sees the NOISEfestival.com charity demonstrating that protest can be achieved through creative means to deliver a powerful message without violence.

She added that NOISE want to motivate young people from across the UK to communicate their issues safely and effectively.

A free ‘Art of Protest’ publication will accompany the exhibition and provides insight into the work on display and contributions from politician Brian Paddik, former Deputy Assistant Commissioner in London’s Met Police. Paddik said: “I think we have lost the art of effective peaceful protest as there are problems on both sides [police and protesters].”

The exhibition opens on 19 October and runs until 27 October (weekdays 9 – 6pm, weekends 11 – 5pm).

Founded in 2005, the NOISE charity is an award-winning online promotional platform for young creative talent (aged 30 and under).
