Malgras|Naudet is a new space for contemporary art, a space in which things might happen....
MALGRAS|NAUDET IS PROUD TO PRESENT ITS INAUGURAL EXHIBITION FEATURING SELECTED WORKS BY CHRIS HAWTIN AND MILES THURLOW. EXHIBITING TOGETHER FOR THE FIRST TIME, THE PAINTINGS OF HAWTIN AND THE SCULPTURES OF THURLOW ARE A REFRESHING DISPLAY OF UNREAL LANDSCAPE AND FAMILIAR OBJECT.
"The exhibitions heady combination of visceral imagery alongside sculptural minimalism complements each artist aesthetically and thematically and with a sincerity that surpasses expectation. The cybernetic organisms of Hawtins canvas seem to come to life in Thurlows glutinous monuments and bring together both of their intentions as a questioning of the functionality and location of the real and unreal in art and beyond."
Open Friday Saturday 12.00 18.00hrs or by appointment Nearest train station: Manchester Piccadilly
