Man on the Street

Steve Chandler & Collective Artists

16 September - 22 October 2000

Man On The Street is an exhibition inspired by the question – what it is to be a man?

Five artist explore individual approaches to this question offering a ‘warts and all’ account of what men may see when looking at others.

Artists: Jason Evans, Gordon MacDonald, Paul M. Smith, Derek Ridgers and Alasdair McLellan.

These artists’ reaction to me echo and explore some of the shifting representations of male identity within the media, advertising and television.

Man On The Street shows men as objects of sexual desire, as clichés egging each other on in a drinking game, as objects of fear and as new consumers.
