Insight illustrates a collection of photographer's work but also the work's progress. An exhibition which is intended as a testimony against the restraints put upon aspiring artists has very little boundaries and gives our photographers a theme in which their work has the freedom to expand and evolve in the most organic way possible.

To Board a Plane

A collaboration between Manchester School of Art, the University of Salford, and the Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art.


'To board a plane' is a phrase banned on social media in China due to its association with the Chinese term ‘to ascend the throne’. 

This group exhibition of mixed media work by postgraduate students and staff from Manchester School of Art and the University of Salford responds to the Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art’s (CFCCA) recent exhibition 'NOW: A dialogue on female Chinese contemporary artists'.

To Board a Plane explores the notion of dystopia, with artists reflecting on censorship in China, the oppression women face in the current global climate, and the rapidly evolving relationship between humans and machines.

2 Glasses of Red & an Exhibition Guide

True communication is an impossible ideal, but it's a pleasure to give it a go. To interact, to talk, drink, dance, fuck, open up emotionally, kiss foreheads and under mistletoe, hug, and angst, and to make art- to make oneself feel good through engaging with the world softens the harsh truth that we may just be doomed to never really know what our neighbour knows.

"We have come together as a group, as we all want to raise awareness about the body and gender. Our work portrays different aspects of these taboos and how they are affecting today's society. However even though our context and color palette is similar the range of techniques and mediums we use are very vast, meaning each piece of work is unique." Melissa Jade Brawn
