British Art Show 9

27 May 2022 – 4 September 2022

British Art Show 9

Alongside partners across the city, the Whitworth will host the forthcoming British Art Show 9. British Art Show is the biggest touring exhibition of contemporary art in the UK and it is widely acknowledged as the most important recurrent exhibition of contemporary art produced in the UK. The ninth edition is curated by Irene Aristizábal and Hammad Nasar and will travel to Wolverhampton, Aberdeen, Plymouth and Manchester.

The exhibition has been developed at a precarious moment in Britain’s history that has brought politics, narratives of identity and questions of agency to the centre of public consciousness. The featured artists respond in critical ways to this complex context; imagining more hopeful futures and exploring new modes of resistance.
 
British Art Show 9 will be presented across HOME; Manchester Art Gallery; Castlefield Gallery; The Whitworth.
