A collection of 90 second films curated by ply in a special pre opening exhibition.
From Thursday 7th August PLY hosts a very special pre launch exhibition, #PLYin90seconds featuring seven internationally renowned creatives who have each created a 90 second pizza themed film via their own artistic medium.
From weaving to graphic design, taking in Vine and YouTube this unique concept showcases each artist’s creation of a 90 second pizza themed film. Why? Because the pizzas PLY will serve in its bespoke wood fired oven, being imported from Naples, will take 90 seconds to bake.
With the site still under construction, #PLYin90seconds will be an exhibition that faces out, with the films being played on screens being positioned in the huge arched windows around the ground floor space that PLY will occupy on Stevenson Square.
In the heart of Manchester’s vibrant Northern Quarter, #PLYin90seconds kicks off an exciting programme of exhibitions and events, putting the venue on the map.
