A new nation-wide art project will see a handful of critically acclaimed artists take over Manchester’s billboards later this month in order to invite passers by to ponder big questions like ‘What brings us together?’, ‘What pulls us apart?’ – and what issues make us do both.

“The last three years have seen fundamental changes to how we relate to one another as individuals and as a society,” says Uta Kögelsberger, the curator behind Division/Revision. “Britain has exited from the European Union; the pandemic has bought new geographies to our daily lives; Black Lives Matter has voiced powerful articulations of systemic inequality. Division/Revision is a reflection on how relations are being re-defined through seismic shifts in the current social and political landscape.”

Running from Monday 15 until Tuesday 30 March and changing daily, the plan is that, at any one time, all sixteen artists’ work will be featured on billboards across participating cities including Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow, Sheffield, Bristol and London. The initiative is part of BUILDHOLLYWOOD’s Your Space or Mine collaborations which aim to encourage discussion and engagement with local city-centre communities. Below, you’ll find details of where you can see Division/Revision’s billboards in Manchester City Centre.
