Whitworth Studies

Are you interested in fresh thinking about the visual arts? The Whitworth Studies offers a programme of talks, events and performances for a broad public audience. The Whitworth is working with Art History and Visual Studies in The University of Manchester to coordinate the Whitworth Studies programme.

All events take place at the Whitworth
Events are FREE and open to everyone

Whitworth Studies aims to encourage and support a wide range of research projects between the Whitworth and Art History and Visual Studies (AHVS), artists, other parts of the University of Manchester, and visiting researchers from other universities.  This research activity will result in exhibitions, conferences, lecture series, events, performances, and research on the Whitworth’s collections.  

Internationally recognised researchers, from the University of Manchester and beyond, will give public lectures and presentations of many kinds, as well as artists talking about their work. 
Whitworth Studies will also encourage experimental encounters with research and experimental forms of presenting research as a signature aspect of its public programme.

The Whitworth Studies programme is designed to appeal to the highly engaged Whitworth public; students with interests in visual culture; researchers at all levels who want to stage or present research on visual culture; and the wider art community of Manchester and the North West.

The Whitworth is working with Art History and Visual Studies in the University of Manchester to coordinate the Whitworth Studies programme.
