On the night before Halloween on the 30th of October 2015, the Williamson Art Gallery & Museum will be hosting a ticketed event called Perfect? to showcase the newly commissioned artwork STARKERS from internationally renowned multi-media artists, Davy and Kristin McGuire .
In an alternative evening with music from Manchester based O>L>A with their dreampop, ambient sound and DJ Riv who recently headlined Manchester Pride; creative food from Supper Club @the Nook, and a bar selling craft beers, bottled lager, wines and spirits, and the evening sounds Perfect?
In May, it was announced that the Williamson Art Gallery & Museum had won the public vote to host an internationally renowned artist commission in October. This is part of the new Museums at Night nationwide events similar to Light Night. In the site specific piece STARKERS, Davy and Kristin McGuire explore the idea of perfection and the female form. Using projection, voice and music, the artists animate a gallery space; creating an inimitable experience that challenges the traditional preconceptions of the Williamson Art Gallery & Museum and its collections.
The McGuires head an award winning creative studio that design unique visual experiences through art installations and theatrical projects. As well as creating bespoke projects for cultural institutions and brands, they produce and sell their own works through international galleries. Davy and Kristin‘s hybrid art works are delicate, filigree fantasies built with fragile materials that are momentarily brought to life through digital projections and silent storytelling.
And the dress code - come as you are!
