Having bumped into Kathryn Miller at Federation House I was excited to piggy-back on her ‘Up On The 5th Floor’ open studio event. I opened my project space up for the evening and got a good showing of 25 or so visitors.
We also had a chance for the Federation House artists to meet and do a brief introduction.
UP ON THE 5TH FLOOR #1 | An installation by Antoine Barrot
This will be the first in a series of events launching in 2014 which will provide regional, national and international artists a pop-up exhibition space to showcase their work, exploring a diverse range of artistic approaches. The events will all be situated within a former office space on the 5th floor of the Co-Operative’s Federation House in central Manchester part of Castlefield Gallery’s New Art Spaces.
Federation House is quickly developing into a diverse creative community. To coincide with this exhibition by artist Antoine Barrot there will be an informal open 5th floor event where you can find out more about some of the different artists who are working within the building.
