    AS PART OF YOUR ALTERNATIVE CURRICULUM THIS FILM WILL BE SCREENING AT THE SUNDAY MARKET GOES BACK TO SCHOOL ON 4TH SEPTEMBER AT 4PM(ish) 

    'William S. Burroughs: A Man Within', a feature-length independent documentary by Chicago Director Yony Leyser, in collaboration with BulletProof Film, Inc.

    The film features never before seen footage of William S. Burroughs, as well as exclusive interviews with his closest friends and colleagues including John Waters, Genesis P-Orridge, Laurie Anderson, Peter Weller, David Cronenberg, Patti Smith, Iggy Pop, Gus Van Sant, Sonic Youth, Anne Waldman, Hal Willner, James Grauerholz, Amiri Baraka, Jello Biafra, V. Vale, Diane DiPrima, with narration by actor Peter Weller and soundtrack by Patti Smith and Sonic Youth.

    The film investigates the life of legendary beat author and American icon, William S. Burroughs. Born the heir of the Burroughs’ adding machine estate, he struggled throughout his life with addiction, control systems and self. He was forced to deal with the tragedy of killing his wife and the repercussions of neglecting his son. His novel, Naked Lunch, was one of the last books to be banned by the U.S. government. Allen Ginsberg and Norman Mailer testified on behalf of the book. The courts eventually overturned their decision in 1966, ruling that the book had important socialvalue. It remains one of the most recognized literary works of the 20th century.

    William Burroughs was one of the first to cross the dangerous boundaries of queer and drug culture in the 1950s, and write about his experiences. Eventually he was hailed the godfather of the beat generation and influenced artists for generations to come. However, his friends were left wondering, did William ever find happiness? This extremely personal documentary breaks the surface of the troubled and brilliant world of one of the greatest authors of all time.

    As part of Islington Mill’s 10-year anniversary artist Susie MacMurray reinstalled her seminal work Stratum. Developed while she was in residence at Islington Mill as a graduate student in 2001, Stratum transformed the attic spaces of the building in a cloud of white duck down.  The installation will be open to the public during Manchester International Festival and will continue throughout 2011 with an accompanying programme of talks and events. The installation is in the attic of the building with restricted access - to book a viewing or for further information, email stratum@islingtonmill.com

    Roll up for the PAPERGIRL MANCHESTER EXHIBITION LAUNCH


    Wednesday 15th June
    Soup Kitchen, Spear Street,
    6pm until Late

    Come on down for some mid week action.  This wednesday will see the launch of the 2011 Papergirl exhibition. Papergirl will be distributing rolls of art by bicycle to passers-by. Come see the art at Soup Kitchen before it is distributed. Featuring illustration, photography, design, screen prints and zines from 50 local and international artists.


    I will be joining the fun by taking the Sumi Ink Club from the market to Soup Kitchen for live drawing that everyone can take part in.

    Click on this sleek poster to RSVP via Facebook.


    WHAT?
    Created by Aisha Ronniger in 2006 in Berlin and branching out first to Manchester and then to other cities across the UK, Papergirl is: participatory, analogue, non-commercial and impulsive. Papergirl is distributed like a newspaper, but not edited or printed like it. It consists of art pieces that are rolled up together.  There are no guidelines as to format, subject matter or quantity, so originals, prints, photos, copies etc. come together. Each roll contains several different works, meaning that each one holds a unique combination of works.  The art rolls cannot be sold and they are not delivered to subscribers.  Giving the work out by bike means that there is no time for any stereotypes when choosing recipients of the pieces. You have to react fast and spontaneously. Chance plays its part.

    So…If that isn’t enough to entice you from your bed this Sunday what else will be going on in Salford?


    As part of the Say Something Series of events at the Mill, this Sunday will see the screening of the EMBRYONIC FILM PROJECT, a collaboration between artists Louise Woodcock and Jennifer Mcdonald.  On recently discovering the work of Derek Jarman, Louise and Jennifer are using their week in residency at Islington Mill to embark on a new film project. In their first use of film Jennifer and Louise will draw together a number of recent influences.

    The film features two women (McDonald and Woodcock) in Pendle Hill, famous for it’s association with the witch trials. The characters perform ritualistically using tribal symbols including animal bones, hair and wool. The film will be displayed with sculptural objects that were used in the film and with a live improvised soundtrack from WOMB.

    The screening will be at 3pm in the first floor gallery.

    The main art gallery will be open continuing the exhibition:  "Themes and Variations: Manchester and Salford."  Illustrator ROBERT SHADBOLT has been making drawings based on current and historical references in Greater Manchester and they are really worth a look.  Prints of the work will also be available to buy, along with screen printed handkerchiefs and badges.

     

    Don’t forget the usual Sumi Ink Club and Salford Zine Library will be there too.
