There's much to explore in our current exhibition programme.
This autumn sees the opening of Material Power: Palestinian Embroidery. On display in the UK for the first time in over 30 years, historical dresses sit alongside the voices of women who continue to embroider today, and the work of contemporary artists critically reinterpreting the practice. Alongside Material Power, our exhibion Traces of Displacement addresses one of the major humanitarian concerns of the 20th and 21st centuries – forced displacement. And we continue to explore Albrecht Dürer's material world, the first major exhibition of the Whitworth’s outstanding Dürer collection in over half a century.
