Il Tempo del Postino

Leading contemporary artists swapped the gallery for the stage in an audacious event that redefined the very meaning of the word ‘exhibition’. The likes of Olafur Eliasson, Matthew Barney and Carsten Höller delivered original works of art that existed purely for the duration of their performances in the Opera House, leaving audiences moved, bewildered and thrilled.

‘A historic occasion… The ambitions of the curators were perfectly matched by the quality of the art’ The Daily Telegraph

‘Contortionists, bulls and dog-headed men – now that’s a show’ The Guardian

Commissioned by Manchester International Festival and the Théâtre du Châtelet, Paris. Produced by Manchester International Festival. Supported by the Henry Moore Foundation.
