STRIKE A POSE
The Royal Exchange has some new visitors who have taken up residence at our main entrance – don’t forget to smile for our newly installed Paparazzi Dogs as you cross the threshold to come inside. Crafted from bronze, these larger-than-life sculptures are the creative expression of Gillie and Marc, a New York-based artistic duo who work together to create a single vision. Designed to highlight the pack mentality of the media, the four Paparazzi Dogs have been travelling the world from New York’s Rockefeller Center to Melbourne’s Federation Square, Shanghai’s Jing’an Sculpture Park and Dublin’s Dundrum Town Centre, before arriving at The Royal Exchange to turn their lens on passers-by in a piece of public art that gives us all a taste of the glare of celebrity living.
