C. R. McBerny is a collaborative project that explores how contemporary painting, performance and writing might produce overtly emotional and demonstrative forms of discourse between intimate communities of artists and writers predominantly in Germany, the United States and the United Kingdom.This limited-edition artists’ book and its related exhibition (28 April to 13 May 2018 at Zwinglistrasse 4, Moabit, Berlin) was produced with a relaxed, informal, easy aestheticism in and mind, one conducive to the warm non-institutional semi-domestic nature of each venue.Performances, lectures, workshops and concerts were also included in C. R.McBerny’s activities, with the publication launch in March 2019 at Yum Yum in Manchester.Featuring the work of over sixty international artists, C. R. McBerny is a playful acronym of the cities Berlin, Manchester and New York. Published after the exhibition, C. R. McBerny at Manchester Central Library.
