Shy Bairns

Shy Bairns are a collective of artists, designers and curators interested in the intersections of contemporary art and bookmaking. Working both collaboratively and independently, they play with ideas of identity, community, and popular culture, with projects ranging from exhibitions about fan culture (Fanspeak at Castlefield Gallery, Manchester, 2019), to imagined paranormal research projects (Shy Bairns Believe It Or Not at The Grundy, Blackpool, 2021).
