Elizabeth Price: A LONG MEMORY

Bringing together many new and acclaimed works, this exhibition engages with Price’s pre-occupations of technology, history, politics and pop music.

A new trilogy of video works, SLOW DANS, will be premiered and her Turner Prize winning THE WOOLWORTHS CHOIR OF 1979, remembering that fatal fire in Manchester, will be shown in the city for the first time.

SLOW DANS is a collaboration between Artangel, Film and Video Umbrella, Nottingham Contemporary, Walker Art Center, Minneapolis and the Whitworth, The University of Manchester.
