This November, the University of Salford’s Chapman Gallery will be hosting 'Frankophilia!' an exhibition of fan's artwork celebrating the great Frank Sidebottom. I am delighted to be a part of this exhibition!
'Earlier this year, fans responded to the sad news of the death of Frank’s creator, Chris Sievey, with a touchingly creative mourning. Images of all kinds of Frank-inspired objects made their way on-line; artwork made in response to the news, or years previously out of sheer Frank-love. 'Frankophilia!' will bring this work together and revel in its beautifully touching daftness - a multi-media ode to Frank.'
17 November - 18 December 2010 (Wed-Sat, 12-5)
Chapman Gallery, Chapman Building, University of Salford, M5 4NT
