What is Second Sight?
Welcome to Second Sight, a new online gallery showcasing the work and practice of the creative communities in Macclesfield, a market town on the edge of the Peak District.
Second Sight has been brought to you by Barnaby Festival, in partnership with arts organisation and innovation lab FutureEverything and artists living and working in Macclesfield, in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.Read more About Second Sight
Second Sight will explore how we can all benefit from changing perspectives. The first three curated exhibitions will follow this theme. The programme begins with Seeing Differently. Discover how the artists respond to the theme with their work.Visit the Seeing Differently Gallery
Looking Forwards is an opportunity to find out how emerging artists are approaching their work and practice. We ask them about where they find inspiration and how their background informs the work they produce.Visit the Forwards Gallery
Looking Backwards is an opportunity to revisit and reflect on the work of the many contemporary artists who have showcased new work in Macclesfield with Barnaby Festival and its partners.Visit the Backwards gallery
