MAC call out for volunteers (MACtivists) to be a part of Gilbert & George exhibition
You can apply to be a MAC volunteer at any time of the year, however over the next few weeks, the MAC will be doing a recruitment drive for volunteers to be a part of their most exciting exhibition yet. We are expecting to welcome thousands of visitors throughout the duration of Gilbert & George: SCAPEGOATING PICTURES for Belfast and this is where we need your help.
Gilbert & George are themselves 100% MAC in their manifesto “what our art means" and from 1970 they proclaimed:
ART FOR ALL
“We want Our Art to speak across the barriers of knowledge directly to people about their life and not about their knowledge of art. The 20th century has been cursed with an art that cannot be understood. The decadent artists stand for themselves and their chosen few, laughing and dismissing the normal outsider. We say that puzzling, obscure and form-obsessed art is decadent and a cruel denial of the Life of People”.
