Push and Pull draws together prints made in and around Salford and Manchester from the late 1970s to the present day, including works made at the Manchester Print Workshop, Hot Bed Press and Islington Mill alongside new work by University of Salford graduates.

The artists in this exhibition experiment with process, pattern and repetition, as well as considering physicality and the body. They interrogate both the methods and labours of printmaking practice as well as the labours of existing and surviving as an artist/worker today.

The exhibition coincides with Print Unltd. at Salford Museum and Art Gallery (open until 14th October) which includes new commissions by Lubna Ali, Claudia Alonso, Joey Collins and Gwilym Hughes.
