Description

On the 8th August 2014 and as part of the A6 Dialogue exhibition at Bankley Studios Gallery Levenshulme Contemporary Art Centre was inaugurated. The production of the institution was realised through the contextual deployment of a wooden box featuring the lettering LCAC within this exhibition at Bankley, then on a signpost along the A6 at the corner of Pennington street. The act of production was completed by the participation of the audience members from the A6 exhibition in our intervention. They attended the opening ceremony of the art centre in a patch of waste land just off the A6, and through their engagement with the events unfolding around them they became our audience. Thus, if only for a moment Levenshulme had a public art gallery, because a group of people within that location asserted its existence. Imagined or otherwise the people in attendance recognised a frame had been drawn around them and their acknowledgement that they now occupied a site of artistic display was materialised in their willingness to consider this otherwise forgotten space anew.
