Design Manchester x MAG takeover

To herald the launch of this year’s Design Manchester festival, join us for an insightful talk by renowned Danish creative, Henrik Vibskov. Exploring in his own words the unique and experimental, multidisciplinary approach to his work he will present images and footage from his career to date and answer audience questions.

Since graduating from Central St. Martins in 2001, Vibskov has won numerous international fashion and design awards and has exhibited at The Museum of Art and Design and MoMA PS1, New York, Palais de Tokyo, Paris and ICA, London, to name but a few.

A selection of Vibskov’s designs currently feature in Manchester Art Gallery’s Nordic Craft and Design exhibition, which closes on 10 November. For this special event, he will talk about his wide ranging practice across fashion, design, curation, installation, performance and music, discussing his collaborative approach to projects and his experimental use of technology.

Henrik Vibskov is currently Professor at DSKD, lectures and been a jury member at institutions such as Central Saint Martins in London, the IED in Madrid and the Antwerp Royal Academy of Fine Art.

Quarantine present Nitty Gritty – Artists’ Talk – Hetain Patel

Join us for a talk with Hetain Patel about living and working as an artist. 

Visual artist and performance maker Hetain concludes his residency with Manchester-based arts ensemble Quarantine with this chance to meet and talk.

During his residency in Quarantine’s Tenancy house, Hetain is inviting local artists, curators and producers to join him for a chat and a cup of tea – and inviting anyone interested to tune in and watch via Facebook Live.

They’ve been discussing what it is to be an artist, how to balance making art with paying the bills, what is and isn’t working in the wider arts ecology, and how change can be brought about.

This event at Manchester Art Gallery is a chance to reflect on the week and to continue the conversation in person. 

Hetain’s live performances, films, sculptures, and photographs have been shown worldwide, including at Manchester Art Gallery, the Venice Biennale, Ullens Centre for Contemporary Art, Beijing and Tate Modern, London. Hetain made his first dance company work for Candoco in 2014, which continues to tour internationally. His video and performance work online have been watched over 35 million times, including his TED talk of 2013 titled Who Am I? Think Again.

He is interested in connecting marginalised identities with the mainstream in an effort to destabilise notions of authenticity and promote personal freedom. With an autobiographical starting point, his work uses humour and the languages of popular culture to highlight familiarity within the exotic; recognition within the unknown. 

Curated and produced by Quarantine, Tenancy is a direct response to the rapid growth and urban development of Manchester and Salford. Through a series of artists’ residencies, projects and events, Tenancy is exploring how the cities are changing and what this means for the people who live here. Tenancy is part of Meet the Neighbours, a three-year cross-artform project co-funded by the European Union’s Creative Europe programme.
