Local Recall is a live sound performance and screening by artists Eileen Simpson and Ben White (Open Music Archive), with young people from 42nd Street, Unity Radio 92.8fm and invited guests. For their live artwork Local Recall, Open Music Archive connect with the social history of Ancoats through music, specifically looking at archival material associated with Manchester Art Museum (1886-1953) and re-visit the free art, music and lectures offered to the Ancoats public from the late 1800s to mid-1900s. The whole project is part of the overall ‘A different Kind of Spirit’ programme which has been curated by one half of Wewioraprojects, Helen Wewiora as part of her current work with 42nd Street.
And as part of Elizabeth Wewiora’s current Hankering for Classifiction events programme, which focuses on artists exploring collecting, archiving and classifying what better an off-site event than that of Open Music Archive’s to tie in a Curator’s walk from the Hankering for Classification exhibition this Thursday evening on to the Ancoats Local Recall event. If you would like to join in on the walk from one project to another then please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org as tickets for the event are limited.
