METHOD MAN...Capital & Centric and Kamani are teaming up to deliver something – they haven’t decided what yet – on a 14,000 sq ft site off Swan Street in Manchester. It could be residential, it could be a hotel, all we know is that if it is half as good as the artwork which has appeared on the units which currently occupy the site, then we’re in for a treat. Street artist Marcus Method, a dab hand with a can of spray paint, has given the buildings a new lease of life while Adam, Adam and Tim decide what they’re going to build. 

Together Trust Plaque Thing March 2020

PLAQUE-NIFICANT.. A plaque that details the history of the Together Trust, and marks it as a place of historical significance, is due to be mounted next to the entrance of Sunlight House on Quay Street, Manchester. The charity, which was originally named a Night Refuge for Homeless Boys, was established on 12 January 1840. Nowadays, the charity is based in Cheadle and provides care for children and adults with autism, learning difficulties, physical disabilities, emotional and behavioural difficulties. Good deeds deserve good plaques. 

Sculpture Thing

BONES & BOATS…Liverpool Biennial, the largest visual contemporary arts festival in the UK, is due to return this year for its 11th edition. Named The Stomach and the Port, the art show will explore “notions of the body and ways of connecting with the world,” and will feature over 50 works of arts dotted around the city. The application for the first is already in with Exchange Flags in line to play host to a five-piece sculpture resembling bones and kayaks fastened to plinths. Sounds… interesting?
