Manchester Art Gallery stays open late for the launch night of two new exhibitions as part of Manchester After Hours: be among the first to see Shirley Baker: Women and Children; and Loitering Men, a showcase of the trailblazing British street photographer’s work around the urban clearance programmes in Manchester and Salford from the 1960s onwards, as well as South Asian Design, an exhibition that spans South Asian craft over the last three centuries – including ceramics, textiles and metalwork from Manchester City Galleries’ historic collections that have been specially conserved for display – alongside the contemporary art it has inspired.
