Scaffold Gallery presents a collection of new works from nineteen artists, in an exhibition exploring the often-complicated relationship between language, image and art.

The artists examine some of the limitations that both language and image carry, as well as responding to their interactions with one another, how one can define the other, and vice-versa. An exciting and wide-ranging selection of artists present work in very differing styles, encompassing performance, print, video, text, sound installations and more.

Phoebe Angel, Robin Broadley, Kristy Campbell, Paul Conneally, Nicola Dale & Laura Weaver, Matthew Dowell, Tracey Eastham, Devon Forrester-Jones, Keaton Fox, Samantha Harvey, Laura Hopkinson, Alex Jones, Vishal Kumaraswamy, Peta Lloyd, Benjamin Lunt, Eden Mitsenmacher, Kate Paul, Edd Ravn, Emily Whitebread.

On the final day of the exhibition a one-off Artist Self-Published Fair will take place to coincide with The Manchester Contemporary, where original zines, books and publications from international and UK based artists will be on sale.
