Abundance at Longsight Art Space

2 March – 2 April 2023
Longsight Art Space, 89 Northmoor Road, Longsight, Manchester, M12 5RT

The touring exhibition Abundance opened in Manchester for the next stage in the x3 collaboration between ActionSpace, Project Ability and Venture Arts.

The exhibition showcased the work of three artists: Erin Keogh (Project Ability), Chandrakant Patel (ActionSpace) and Kathy Wilmott (Venture Arts), with audio descriptive poetry by Sally Hirst (Venture Arts). All three artists have significant bodies of work, shown for the first time on a larger scale in Abundance, with the aim to connect audiences to the immediacy and energy seen in each artists’ practice. Having launched in Glasgow in 2022, this was the second iteration of the exhibition which will open for its third and final viewing in London later in 2023.

The preview event on Thursday 2 March saw audio/visual artist Joe Beedles and dancer and choreographer Hannah Buckley present new performances in response to the work on show.

Abundance exhibition image is divided into three verticle panels displaying a section of abstract artworks by the artists exhibiting. The title Abundance is written across these images.
