***** Just a note to let you know that the Ravenous Apparitions animation workshop tonight is currently fully booked - however, we'd still love to see you all at the exhibition preview and there will be complimentary cocktails for all guests from 6pm! If you've missed out on tickets for the workshop and are still keen to take part, make yourself known to either Beki or Mel when you get here and if there are any cancellations or no shows, we will do our best to squeeze you in. See you later! PLY x *****
New York based artist, teacher, and writer Andrew Salomone is heading to PLY to prove there’s more to pizza than meets the eye. Wow, we rhyme!
Andrew is an experimental artist who works with traditional art and craft processes informed by technology and DIY culture. His exhibition at PLY is an extension of his ‘pizzoetrope’ project – which uses pizzas, record decks and strobe lighting to create the illusion of motion.
We’re all about disco pizza after all…
Using this process, Andrew will create a set of animations that will be on display at PLY both as installations and finished pieces of film.
To launch his exhibition, Andrew will be flying over from New York to run an animation workshop where you will be able to create your own moving images – firstly creating your own animations on slip mats (DJs, listen up!) and then recreating these animations on pizzas fresh out of the PLY oven!
This promises to be both an intriguing and delicious start to the show!
As ever, our arts partner, Absolut, will be PLYing you with drinks and those who take part in the workshop will get to eat their picturesque pizza!
We look forward to seeing you there!
This event is being delivered in partnership with Absolut and Fred Aldous.
When & Where
PLY is a bustling bar and pizza hangout in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. We serve sourdough pizza from our wood-fired, mirror-tiled, clay oven – with fine wines, craft beers and cocktails.
In addition, we serve up a varied and interesting programme of creative exhibitions and events – so far we have showcased film, illustration, animation and textiles based exhibitions by internationally renowned artists and this programme will continue to develop into 2016.
Also, look out for the doodle wall, which is refreshed regularly by local artists and the library – or PLYbrary – where you can spend a good few hours with a book and your favourite bottle.
