University of Salford’s visual arts programme explores the theme of serendipity in a new exhibition at new art space, Federation House, combining different mediums and explorations to reflect the diversity of its practices. Presenting a range of individual responses, the exhibition uses psychology, politics and history to demonstrate the ways in which serendipity can be interpreted and explored. Each reflecting a different approach, works include: a fusion of unconscious ideologies with physical reality; finding of order in the apparently random; Angelology and Demonology; psychedelic art and the human psyche; experimentation using rust, stitch, and fire; and an ironic play on serendipity, inspired by Duchamp. Federation House (pictured) is situated next to The Printworks, off Corporation Street.
