Following on from the huge success of Sketch-O-Matic last year, when 40+ artists, illustrators, poets, doodle-makers and pen-smiths created instant-ish portraits of almost 1,000 sitters, we are happy to announce that the booth is coming back! It will launch for Manchester Weekender on Fri 12 October for a ten day residency. You are invited to sit inside the booth as if for a photograph and make a minimum donation of £1 to an artist through an anonymous slot in return for a self-portrait. Many of last year’s favourite artists will be making a return, but we’ll also be welcoming lots of new artists to capture your visage for posterity. Presented alongside Top Bunk!, a Cornerhouse Projects exhibition featuring affordable limited prints.
Sat 13 Oct, 15:00 – 19:00 (free, booking required)
Composite: Feedback is a multimedia showcase and live archiving event curated by Liverpool’s Mercy, mixing together spoken-word performance with live sampling, notation, analogue processing, and projection – all in one self-generating feedback loop. It’s a beautiful and absurd experiment, where the performers and array of interfaces are thrown into a productive conflict. The event is split into three sections, beginning with short talks and performances, followed by a feedback workout, pushing the performers into a state of continual improvisation. Featuring poets Steven Fowler, Hannah Silva and Nathan Jones, and writer/artist Mark Greenwood. With video design by Sam Meech. This is a Cornerhouse MicroCommission, supported by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation.
David Shrigley: Show & Tell
Sat 13 Oct, 13:30 – 15:00 (free, booking required)
As part of the Manchester Weekender, David Shrigley will give a unique talk on his interests and working methods in a playfully devised audio-visual presentation. Afterwards there will be an opportunity for the audience to ask the artist questions about his work and the show itself. Due to popular demand, we’ve moved this event to Cinema 1. Tickets will be available to book from 12:00 on Mon 1 Oct.
