Excavating the Reno
Thursday 23 November, 6-9pm, free
An evening of stories and music celebrating the people and energy of the Reno, 1971-1981. Since, October 2016 Linda Brogan has filmed personal memoirs of the demolished subcultural Moss Side cellar club, the Reno.
To mark the excavation of the Reno, the Whitworth will hand over it’s spaces to the Reno’s community as they project their stories, huge across gallery walls, install their artifacts as statues and blast their music at a pop-up Reno bar. Through these interventions, Linda is questioning, who cultural institutions are for, who has been excluded, and what stories haven’t previously been given space?
“Memoirist, family, friends, online audience, will swarm, noisy, laughing, glasses in hand, the building will belongs to us.” Linda brogan
