Castlefield Gallery presents ‘Pass the Time of Day’, an exhibition curated by artist Paul Rooney, which explores the theme of the estrangement of everyday life through the use of music.
The selected works, which include existing and newly commissioned pieces, have an active involvement with the emotional effects of music, mirroring our fluid and subjective experience of the everyday. The works explore the potential within day-to-day existence for creativity and resistance to constraint, and they often deal with the theme of ‘wasted time’, or time loosely and freely spent, as an act of resistance.
Renowned critic Michael Bracewell will be ‘in conversation’ with Andrew Cross; drawing to a close the final leg of his exhibition tour, An English Journey (part III).
In order to develop links between artists based in London and the Northwest, Artquest and Castlefield Gallery are inviting artists to participate in a seminar discussion on the relationship between art in London and the rest of the UK. The panel of speakers have been selected because of their experiences of working across the UK: they include Manchester artist Nick Crowe; Becky Shaw who has recently moved from Liverpool to London via Cambridge; and London-based artists Andrew Cross and Olivia Plender, who also exhibit widely across the UK.
Please note that this opportunity is by invitation only. No submissions accepted.
Venue: The King’s Arms, 11 Bloom Street, Salford. M3 6AN
Admission: Free. No Need to book. Limited capacity.

Short-listed for Beck’s Futures 2004, Cross began working as an artist in 2000 following an established career as a curator. The exhibition continues Castlefield’s 21st Anniversary Programme; working with a range of artists whose practice embodies aspects of history, place and time.
Castlefield Gallery launches the 21st Anniversary Talks & Events Programme with a discussion about artists’ books and self-publishing.
