Last week I went to see Tight Modern in St Helens Central Library. Tight Modern is a miniature replica of the Tate Modern gallery in London and it showcases the work of over 60 marginalised and disabled artists from across the UK and also St Helens in this exhibition. It is dubbed the ‘The world’s smallest pop-up gallery’ and it really is!
‘The Tight Modern tours to galleries and libraries across the UK and is accompanied by free workshops led by inspirational artist facilitators. For more information on our workshops go to Workshops & Resources.
Tight Modern is produced by Creative Future, an award-winning charity based in Brighton that provides training, mentoring and showcasing opportunities for talented writers and artists who lack opportunities due to mental health issues, disability, identity, health or social circumstances.’

You can browse and see so many different artworks and medias and you can vote for your favourite at the end. I narrowed it down eventually but at one point I had at least 22 on my list I liked.
It is really good and you should go and see it whilst it’s up north. It has just finished its run at Haydock Library and it will be on show at Eccleston Library from the 25th January to the 15th February 2017. It will then move on to Ilford and Portsmouth. Full tour dates are available HERE.
