Usually when I see a bike whizzing in my direction my immediate reaction is to get out of the way but during the month of October I may need to rethink this strategy. You see there is a new exhibition in Manchester making its UK debut. Papergirl is an art project originally from Berlin, started in 2006 by Aisha Ronniger as a reaction to the discussion in the media about the tightening of graffiti laws to include paste ups.

Artists from all over the world have donated works that will be distributed by bicycle in the streets of Manchester to random passers-by, in the style of American paper-boys. Each roll consists of posters, prints and originals, uniquely wrapped together to create a one-off combination of works.

There will be a chance to catch the artwork before it’s distributed at the launch/preview night on Thursday 30th September from 7pm at Soup Kitchen {31-33 Spear St, Manchester, M1 1DF}

The Papergirl Manchester Exhibition will run from 1st October to 21st October in association with Manchester Free for Arts Festival 2010.
