Our opening event at the Gallery went OFF! Whitworth Young Contemporaries arrived in grand and LOUD style. The grand hall was packed full of 300 people, we also had a queue of hundreds outside who couldn’t get in. Mouse Outfit’s performance was amazing, with live beats, brass and MC’s; the band and the audience were jumping… so much energy. The tunes were all playing amidst our 360 degree film collage, which was controlled by Venya and our young Digital Artist Sophie, it was great to see our combined efforts projected on such a large scale on such a grand occassion. the interactive visuals were coming in, with people being encouraged to ‘Activate the Space’ and tweet and instagram pictures and comments. Check out our gallery of images, there will be more footage and videos to come over the next few weeks. Well done to WhitworthYC and all the artists who supported us to make this event happen. Whitworth Young Contemporaries are here and ready for their future in the gallery.
