A MMU project in collaboration with Cardiff School of Art and Design, University College Falmouth and University of Sunderland. Pairings brings together makers across disciplines to ask questions about acquired knowledge and the perceptions of practice through the cross fertilization of media and ideas. Sharon Blakey is paired with Jerwood prize-nominated weaver, Ismini Samanidou. The first stage of the project is an exhibition in the Special Collections Gallery at MMU in Spring 2010 and is expected to culminate in a touring exhibition and associated conference towards the end of 2010 and beyond.
