Sources is the first in a new series of Members Exhibitions launching in February 2019. Curated by Joe Preston this exhibition was selected by guest selector Dr Je Yun Moon and Castlefield Gallery’s curator Matthew Pendergast from proposals submitted by Castlefield Gallery Associates. Dr Je Yun Moon is a curator and writer from South Korea working with art, architecture and performance. She has worked for Venice Architecture Biennale, 백남준아트센터 Nam June Paik Art Center and the Korean Cultural Centre UK, and in 2018 was appointed Head of Programmes for Liverpool Biennial.
Sources features work by artists from a range of backgrounds, cultures and generations, undertaking diverse approaches to storytelling with photography, video and sculpture. At a time when ‘post-truth’, ‘fake news ‘and ‘alternative facts’ are household phrases, wherein experts, intellectuals and once-trusted news networks are met with suspicion and accused of bias, the selectors feel this outward-looking exhibition makes a strong case for artists to play an increasingly important role documenting and sharing the stories of our complex world.
Joe Preston is a Castlefield Gallery Associate and one of three 2018-19 Castlefield Gallery / Manchester School of Art mentees, selected by Castlefield Gallery’s Director Helen Wewiora from Manchester School of Art 2018 graduates for his exceptional promise as an artist, in particular as a film-maker.
