GALA: A virtual exhibition of painting, film and digital responding to and in support of historic Victoria Baths in Manchester from DEZ REZ PROJECTS.


IG: @Dez_Rez_Projects

Seven Manchester artists who were to be staging an exhibition of new work at Victoria Baths this month, April 2020, were it not for the Covid-19 pandemic, are instead creating a virtual project space using Instagram in which audiences can view an exhibition of artwork and a programme of artists talks from 25th April-2nd May. 

15% of any sales will go to Victoria Baths in support of its Back the Baths Crowdfunding appeal, launched to help the Baths stay afloat during the Covid crisis,  and artists are donating artwork for fundraising rewards for every donation of £1 or more and original/limited edition works for donations over £100.

Alongside a gallery of new works, artists will be taking viewers on tours of temporary home studios in which they are creating work during isolation, sharing their processes and developing their work over the course of the week, and possibly beyond, on Instagram from Saturday 25th April -Saturday 2nd March.

Organised by Dez Rez Projects, a DIY artist-led pop up gallery and project space on Instagram @Dez_Rez_Projects, the artists have been responding to the theme of Victoria Baths and the social history, design and decorative aesthetics of this Edwardian public building, which was built as a public health intervention by Manchester City Council in 1906.
