Suckerpunch is currently a one-month curatorial residency led by Benjamin Davies and Laura Brady at The Great Medical Disaster, Manchester. This residency will focus on artist-led galleries and the artists and curators that manage these spaces. Over January, Brady and Davies plan collaborations with White Wizard based in Liverpool and Collar based in Manchester. An interest in the artist-led is something both Brady and Davies have shown in their work. Recently completing an MA in Contemporary Curating at MMU, Brady has interviewed over 20 artist-led galleries from across the North – compiling these into a book Brady is seeking to publish in 2018. Davies has, until recently, co-managed the artist-led gallery A Small View, Liverpool – showing both national and international artists over a 2-year period.
