Mill 24: 12 new sound recordings in the first 12 hours.

12pm - 12am

Mill24 is a series of 24 hour exhibitions taking place every last Saturday of the month in April 2010 and May 2010 at Islington Mill, Manchester, UK.

The project will utilise all 5 floors of the vastly versatile Mill space with a diverse range of work from both Local and International artists. The work will be innovatively presented, with site specific installation, performance, and time based media. Each exhibition will be a packed programme of up and coming artists, with each piece of work scheduled within a structured ‘day’.

The concept for this project was born out of an interest in the quick turnaround of exhibition programming and the short attention span towards art that comes with it. The 24-hour time frame is essentially one private view, prolonging the excitement of an opening but turning all of the artwork shown in the exhibition into ‘limited edition’ works, once the day is over the work will not be seen again at the same venue. We have curated these engaging, interactive shows so that throughout one day several performances, happenings, and ‘openings’ occur simultaneously.
