the everyday

Manchester bore witness to a procession of the everyday, and the not so, on Sunday 5th July 2009. Jeremy Deller‘s Procession as part of the Manchester International Festival drew together specialist interest groups who represent parts of the diversity of this and any other city. The parade exposed networks of middle aged people in technical fabrics (ramblers) and young men perfumed by petrol and hair gel (boy racers), it celebrated the mundane (valerie’s cafe) and championed the ordinary (chipshops).
