Castlefield Gallery in partnership with the University of Salford Art Collection presents 40 Years of the Future: Where Should We Be Now?

About

40 Years of the Future: Where Should We Be Now? brings together the work of a sculptor, photographer and artist-filmmaker – Jeffrey Knopf, Theo Simpson, and Hope Strickland. These artists are deeply committed to their disciplines, but also keen to work with them in expanded and non-traditional ways.

In both the content of their work and materials used, Knopf, Simpson and Strickland explore our complex relationship with the past, present and future. Importantly they challenge the dominant cultural narrative that the world has only one history. As Castlefield Gallery marks 40 years, this exhibition asks us to pause, to reflect and consider how we might imagine the future with the recognition that history isn’t the same for everyone; that amongst the artists we work with and the people that visit Castlefield Gallery, the past is felt and experienced differently.

The exhibition will present existing pieces alongside commissioned works developed in partnership with the University of Salford Art Collection, some of which will enter the University’s collection for the benefit of future generations. This builds on Castlefield Gallery’s decade of co-commissioning and artist development collaborations with the University of Salford Art Collection.
