EXHIBITION : May 23, 2019 — September 7, 2019.
‘Misshaping Peterloo’ is a newly commissioned collection of ceramics that has been created to mark the 200 year anniversary of the Peterloo Massacre.
The ‘Misshaping Peterloo’ collection has been created by illustrator and ceramicist Alex Sickling, inspired by the individuals who fought and died for their rights and freedom on that fateful day of 16 August 1819. This poignant, playful and political pottery looks at how and why we commemorate disaster and historical events using ceramics, and how key facts become distorted when meeting a deadline.
Commissioned by Manchester Craft & Design Centre for the bicentenary commemorations of the Peterloo Massacre.
Everything is for sale – please visit the office for more information, email us on email@example.com, or call 0161 832 4274.
Part of Manchester Histories #Peterloo2019 programme of events.
