do it 20 13 A group art show

A large, lively and thoughtful show…great opportunities to have fun — and make an absolute spectacle of yourself.

During MIF13’s most democratic event, Manchester Art Gallery was a hive of artistic activity, with works being realised not by artists but by audiences.

One hundred and fifty artists contributed instructions that audiences in this vast, energetic exhibition had to follow. Seizing the imagination of the city, the event saw gallery-goers participate by drawing, cooking, climbing and smiling.

Manchester shoppers were also caught in the action when Manchester Arndale played host to the instruction How to Catch the Holy Ghost or Get Arrested in a Shopping Mall.

Commissioned by Manchester International Festival and Manchester Art Gallery.
