Thursday Lates

Start the weekend early with our Thursday Lates – a series of sociable, after work and late openings that are the perfect place to meet up with friends, explore the gallery and enjoy a specially curated selection of talks, performances, film screenings, live music and artist interventions.

Thursdays, 6-9pm, free unless otherwise stated

Thursday Lates Takeover
PERSPECTIVES in Contemporary Art
Thursday 29 November, 6-9pm
Free, no need to book 

PERSPECTIVES in Contemporary Art is presented by Venture Arts and seeks to open up conversations about the visibility of learning disabled artists within contemporary art spaces and how this relates to both the world of outsider art and the disability arts scene.

There will be opportunities to hear specialist view points in the field and to hear about Conversations Series II, a diverse six-person residency using the Whitworth’s Outsider Art Collection as a starting point. Artists will be on hand from Venture Arts to share their work with you from PERSPECTIVES over food and drinks, and audio-visual artist Joe Beedles, a current artist in residence, will be showcasing a new immersive audio visual piece utilising his sounds and digital imagery and projection mapping created by artists from Venture Arts.
PERSPECTIVES is a series of exhibitions, happenings and creative exchanges across Greater Manchester proudly presented by visual arts organisation Venture Arts. From 1 October 2018 through to 24 February 2019, artworks developed over the last two years will be unveiled to the public for the first time in a number group shows occupying both historical and contemporary venues.
