HMG Paints are pleased to be supporting the Unrealised Potential exhibition. The exhibition is taking place at the Cornerhouse, Manchester's international centre for contemporary visual arts and film. The Free Exhibition starts on Saturday 17th July and runs until Sunday 12th September.
Unrealised Potential is a collaborative group exhibition instigated by artist/curator Mike Chavez-Dawson. The show aims to explore the creative potential of artists’ unrealised projects, blurring the lines between artist, curator, visitor and producer.
Mike Chavez-Dawson together with artists Sam Ely and Lynn Harris, co-founders of Unrealised Projects (2003-2010), re-visit Chavez-Dawson's original project Potential Hits (2003), to present an amassed collection of artists unfulfilled proposals in Gallery 1, offering visitors the opportunity to purchase the right to interpret and realise an artist’s idea.
In Gallery 2, artists Brian Reed and Len Horsey realise Liam Gillick’s project PLANTA DE ANODIZADO, transforming the space into a mock business fair pavilion, advertising the products of the Mexican company LGD LUCK SA.
While Gallery 3, presents the first UK display of Strategic Questions 2002-2010 curated by Gavin Wade, with a new commission from RELAX (chiarenza & hauser & co). This commission features a new publication; a caged depositary of strategic answers and invites visitors to participate in a process of exchange, all in response to the question What is Wealth?
