Twenty Twenty Two, the music, arts and ping pong space in the heart of the Northern Quarter has introduced a new exhibition wall/space dedicated to support the work of underground artists.
Meat Collective will be the first to take over the wall space, located in the Ping Pong room, to showcase their work from the 20th February. Formed in 2012 by Ben Burford, Ben Harrison & Stuart Southwell, the Manchester collective use their work to explore aspects of the grotesque, identities and relationships.
Bringing together their practices in film photography, painting
and drawing, and recently moving into exploring methods of printing; Meat Collective offer a plethora of methods and ideas to chew on. The showcase at 2022 is a glimpse into where they are currently up to, with some previously exhibited work, further development on ideas from earlier shows, and a few new things thrown in.
On the opening night the artists will have handmade and photographic prints for sale at their meat counter; original artwork and prints will be available to buy from the collective directly for the duration of the exhibition.
Going forward, Twenty Twenty Two will have a programme of artists each month, with an array of upcoming artists and collectives invited to take over the space to exhibit.
Following on from the meat Collective exhibition artists from Barcelona will be taking over on the 27th March for 4 weeks as part of the BCNMCR
