An Art Exhibition
Goodstock Gallery Space, Manchester.
December 10th 2017 marked the first exhibition by Get It Done. Inspired by the Sex Pistols' gig at the Manchester Free Trade Hall - a tiny gig who's attendees went on to form The Smiths, Joy Division, New Order, Factory Records and The Hacienda - Get It Done was set on infusing Manchester's limp and lifeless art scene with a vibrant youthful creative revolution.
Get It Done: An Art Exhibition was a celebration, a punky do-it-yourself celebration of young Manchester's creatives, sticking up two fingers to a lack of accessible creative opportunity and demystifying getting things done.
Including artwork by MOTLEY, Keith Bloody Mary, Louis Butler, Charlie Williams, Sam O'Leary, Lauren Eastwood-Roberts, Amber Queally, Steph Ross, Emma Plover and performances from Sarah Macias and Nobels Auction (Sam O'Leary, Kevin Boardman and Liam Senior-Watson), showing and selling us "works" from the entirely fictional and comical 'A Cultural Hotbed'. And of course an installation by Get It Done's founders Mimi Dearing, Georgina Fox and Ruby Kerr focusing on Manchester's rapid redevelopment and the lack of accessible creative space in the city.
