The Death of Modernity

Chuck Gallery invites you to the launch of Samir Salim’s first collection; a delightful tapestry, each piece a story and together with a strong body of work.

“I aim to redefine modernism within a contemporary setting.  The disparity in definition of the words modernity and contemporary is something, which, in my eyes, should be the fulcrum of all artistic endeavours to substantially narrow” Samir Salim

A self-taught artist, Samir Salim is an exemplar of diasporan art. Rooted in the great modern art movements in Europe, his work pulls in references of a well-travelled, old soul to bring us with a flourish, into the globalized and multicultural present.


LAUNCH DATE: Saturday, 21th-27st March 2020; 6:00 PM

LOCATION: 166 Plymouth Grove, Manchester, M13 0AF.
