You may already know that we name 2008 Turner Prize winning Mark Leckey as the first artist to commission a piece of art inspired by Casuals. The 'Fiorruci made me Hardcore' film from 1999 explored youth culture from Northern Soul through to Casuals and the Rave Scene. Now the film can be seen for the first time in the North since it was screened at one our 80s Casuals events in 2009. The Manchester Art Gallery is opening a major Exhibition of Marks work from this Friday 17 February until Sunday 18 March. Besides showing 'Fiorucci' the Gallery will also be having sound performances from Mark every Thursday throughout the four weeks of the Exhibition.
