Stanley Chow: The Takeaway
11 April – 22 June 2014
CFCCA presented the retrospective work of internationally renowned illustrator Stanley Chow. Gallery 2 was transformed by the memories of Chow’s childhood, bringing together works from almost 20 years ago to the current day. As a Manchester born artist whose parents emigrated from Hong Kong in the 1960s, Stanley took CFCCA on an immersive trip down memory lane, turning our window space into a Chinese takeaway shop front and inviting the visitor into a full retrospective of his illustrative life. These ‘takeaway memories’ were simply just that: the end of the exhibition was celebrated with a takeaway sale of all the artworks on display.
