Pool Arts hosted Penny Arcade, Andy Warhol’s original Factory Superstar and a collaborator with the father of performance art Jack Smith, last weekend in a series of unique events in Manchester.
Penny Arcade attended an Afternoon Tea Party in the yard at Horsfall Space at 42nd Street where she met with Pool Arts members and friends. Her video work True Stories NYC was shown in the exhibition Dreaming Of New York at the same venue. Later there was a special Dinner with Penny Arcade at Manchester’s coolest new venue HOME, followed by performances by local artists and Penny Arcade in Person performing.
We also welcomed honoured guest David Hoyle and both he and Penny Arcade are keen to support Pool Arts and their vision of a more inclusive art scene.
