As a digital design agency, we are always searching for artistic inspiration. From internationally renowned masterpieces to student projects, there is incredible work to be discovered around every corner.
Recently, we have been scratching our heads trying to think of a fun way to celebrate the work that inspires us. Then we had a lightbulb moment: why not create our very own exhibition space right here in the mN studio?
Introducing ‘Walls & Pictures’: a brand new series of exhibitions curated by magneticNorth. Walls & Pictures will run throughout the year, featuring specially selected pieces from our favourite creatives.
To kick things off, we are delighted to be showing the work of one of Manchester’s most talked about street photographers, The Mancorialist. Named as a playful nod towards fashion photographer The Sartorialist – The Mancorialist has built up a portfolio of over 1000 street portraits that truly capture the spirit and diversity of Manchester and its people.
We are lucky enough to have a selection of these photographs on display at mN until the end of April. It would be wonderful if you could pop in and take a look next time you’re in the area. If you know Manchester well, you may recognise one or two of the faces featured in this lovely collection.
To coincide with the launch of Walls & Pictures and as part of our existing movieNight series, on the 5th of March we will be showing Oscar nominated documentary Finding Vivian Maier. Vivian’s story, directed by John Maloof and Charlie Siskel, forms part of a wider revival in interest in the art of Street Photography. How very fitting.
We are now looking for work for the second edition of Walls & Pictures. If you are an artist or student, and would be interested in displaying your work in the mN studios, why not get in touch? Whatever your style, we would love to hear from you.
