Every day from 10-15 November, Everything Everything take over Manchester Central Library for a week-long residency of artist explorations and experiments that will be played out in full public view.
Collaborating with artists from other disciplines and music agency Brighter Sound, the event will test out the new spaces of Central Library, but also test the limits of what a 21st century library can be.
Everything Everything is part of a thriving scene of Manchester musicians currently reshaping the city’s international music reputation, selling out concerts across the globe as well as garnering critical acclaim, earning a Ivor Novello Award nomination in 2011 for their debut album Man Alive and again this year for their recent single Kemosabe.
During that week you will be invited to enter the library as you would your own mind, with curiosity and imagination, and watch a mix of installations, performances and ideas unfold, exploring the theme of a library as a place where chaos lies latent. A place of thoughts, feelings and observations of a changing and conflicting world are all captured, coded and categorised, only to be returned to the chaotic and creative spaces from where they came once found and read.
More details of the residency will be announced in the coming months. Sign up now to the Library Live newsletter to be the first to hear the latest updates as they go live, including a showcase on Saturday 15thNovember when the ideas and experiments of the week will come together in a public event.
Events will be free, but some may be ticketed.
