‘Life of a Bluestocking’ is an exhibition that celebrates the end of Euphemia P. Niblock’s year long “Writer in Residence” at Apartment. During this time Miss Niblock has used Apartment as means to explore her idiosyncratic explorations of the city and ‘Archaeology of Now’ through her blog ‘Diary of a Bluestocking’ and by her various contributions to publications on-line and in print.

The show will chart this unique character’s year long journey of self discovery. Euphemia P Niblock is a spinster, an antiquarian, a flaneuse and the epitome of the Edwardian Bluestocking. In 2003, after eighty years in obscurity, she emerged unexpectedly from the revamped Manchester Museum, and is still adjusting to life in 21st century. Her bemused and astute explorations into the contemporary world have established her as a significant commentator on the peculiarities of present-day life through her examination of art, artists and modern architecture.

E.P Niblock was shortlisted for the Manchester Blog awards and has recently contributed to The Long Night of the Liverpool Biennial, a one off publication commissioned by Open Eye Publication.
