Alongside the curated programme of exhibitions, visitors can explore the rich art scene in Macclesfield through a series of galleries that showcase new work, artists’ profiles as well as a peak in artists’ studios and sharing of creative processes. From painting, sculpture, poetry, ceramics and light installations to Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, film and photography, Second Sight creates a great opportunity to discover the exciting artistic community in Macclesfield.
The artists included here were invited to share their profiles on Second Sight after responding to Barnaby Festival’s Open Call for its visual arts trail.
An additional two sections, Looking Forwards and Looking Backwards, create space to explore work by emerging artists presenting new content, and space to reflect on projects commissioned in Macclesfield and for Barnaby Festival responding to place, heritage, history and the community.
At FutureEverything, we are thrilled to have been involved with this exciting initiative working closely with Barnaby Festival, twentysevenb studios and artists involved, and Cotton Creative to co-curate and co-design this project. And we are looking forward to what comes next on Second Sight!
