From Moss Side to Marseille Calendar
14 January 2023 - 18 June 2023
The National Football Museum has announced a new, thought-provoking exhibition jointly curated by artist Michael Browne and France and Manchester United legend, Eric Cantona.
From Moss Side to Marseille: The Art of Michael Browne and Eric Cantona is a collection of fine art pieces by Michael Browne which chronicle the relationship between sport and modern society.
Commissioned by Cantona and executed by Browne in his distinctive figurative style, the collection is influenced by their sporting heroes who used their positions to advocate for social change, despite the great personal cost. Themes boldly address human rights, equality, injustice, the impact of power and elevations to a godlike status.
Visitors will experience the commanding scale of Browne’s work alongside never before seen items from his personal archive, revealing the poignant stories and influences behind his relationship with Cantona.
Visitors can also learn more about the artworks on our interpreter-led tours, or on a special tour with Michael Browne himself!
