Artist and Curator Tour: Matthew Bamber and Ivy Kalungi

9 October 2022 / 3 - 4pm

Join artists Ivy Kalungi, Matthew Bamber and our curator Matthew Pendergast for a tour of our exhibition: Matthew Bamber and Ivy Kalungi.

The exhibition includes new work by Kalungi and Bamber, two artists who explore how images, objects and bodies hold memories of both personal and social histories. Seen together the works of these two artists speak both of trauma but also about the possibility for care, patience and understanding one another. The exhibition will include large scale sculptural works, alongside video work and digital collage.

As part of Castlefield Gallery and Manchester School of Art’s long-standing partnership activity, Kalungi and Bamber’s work was selected from an open call to MA/MFA Fine Art and MA/MFA Painting Graduates from Manchester School of Art, at Manchester Metropolitan University, who graduated in the last 10 years (2011 onwards). They were selected by guest selector and artist, Hardeep Pandhal, Castlefield Gallery Curator & Deputy Director, Matthew Pendergast, and Programme Leader of MA/MFA Fine Art at Manchester School of Art, Ian Rawlinson.
