Manx international artist Kevin Atherton returns to the Isle of Man with a retrospective exhibition at the Manx Museum. Covering a career that stretches into six decades and which has involved pioneering work in film, video, performance art, and public sculpture, the exhibition brings together Atherton’s significant achievements in these cutting edge fields into a building he has been familiar with since childhood.
Kevin says: “There were two places that saved me when I was a kid growing up in the Isle of Man, one was the Manx Museum that showed me where I came from and the other was the public library in Ridgeway Street which showed me who I could become. I regularly visited both buildings after school and remember engaging with fiction in one and art in the other.”
