Honk was the tenth show by the Manchester based artist collective Contents May Vary and the first to be taken on tour. The exhibition visited four established art venues in the North of England as part of Artranspennine08 coinciding with prominent contemporary art and music events.
Contents May Vary showed work produced and selected in response to the transportation and exhibition context of a white van. The artists incorporated everyday objects through animation, drawing and performance and exhibited three varied individual works with subtle commonalities.
The white van is synonymous with the transit of varied goods and materials and is a regular method of art transportation. Contents May Vary chose to exhibit within the vehicle, leaving the exhibition one step short of it's expected gallery destination.
