At this event children from Grange School will be performing alongside artist Nicola Smith. There will be a film made by the school that highlights the wonders and struggles of being autistic and shares the young people’s personal experiences.

Waqas Khan in conversation

Waqas Khan’s minimalist drawings resemble webs and celestial expanses. Inspired by patterns of biological organic growth and also by the lives and literature of Sufi poets, his work is a meditation on life, togetherness and the universe. His contemplation is made visible in ink on paper and his work invites our contemplation. Using small dashes and minuscule dots, his large-scale, monochromatic works are composed of either red, blue, white or black ink.

Waqas will be visiting Manchester at the end of his show and will be in conversation with curator, Fareda Khan.

See What I See

See What I See presents moving image works by contemporary visual artists Feral Practice (Fiona Macdonald), Julie del’Hopital, Maeve Rendle, Nicola Dale & Matylda Wierietielny and Victoria Lucas. For each artist, moving image is employed as a way of seeing that both complements and reaches beyond their work with sculpture, drawing, photography and/or writing. From the scripted to the chance encounter, these previously unscreened works take in animation, performance and documentary, inviting you to see what the artists see when they lend their gaze to the camera. A Q&A with the artists will follow the screenings.
