Former Joy Division drummer will open students’ exhibition
AN EXHIBITION by students on music which has influenced their art will be opened by Stephen Morris talking about his own musical heroes.
Pupils from Macclesfield College have teamed up with Incubation Arts to put on the Sound (Track) exhibition at Charles Roe House. It will raise money for Incubation Arts’ project to turn Charles Roe House into an arts hub with Joy Division exhibition.
Joy Division drummer Stephen Morris will launch the exhibition at a preview night when Dave Haslam, DJ at Manchester’s former Hacienda nightclub, will ask him about his musical influences, starting with David Bowie’s Sound and Vision track.
Julie Hamer, director of Incubation Arts, said: “Music is at the heart of this collaborative project. Students studying photography, graphics, fine art and fashion will show their work. Photographers Nigel Maitland, Martin O Neill, Antony Mulryan and Graphic Illustrator Nick Oldham will show images relating to the Manchester Music scene.”
The launch is on Wednesday, February 24, 7pm. Buy tickets from Macclesfield College. The exhibition is until March 6 from 10am to 4pm.
