Workplace Foundation is delighted to present the first solo exhibition of Manchester based artist Louise Giovanelli in the Northeast of England.

Louise Giovanelli was born in London in 1993 and lives and works in Manchester UK. She completed her BA in Fine Art at Manchester School of Art in 2015, and is currently studying at Städelschule in Frankfurt Am Main, Germany.
