Manchester Art Gallery
Thursday 30 November 2017, 6pm–7pm
Claire Mander | Curator and Director of the CoLAB
Claire Mander draws on her curatorial work situating site-specific installations in unusual spaces to consider the importance of site to public sculpture.
Sculpture: a fabrication talks programme contextualises the research of Mark Devereux Projects’ represented artist Nicola Ellis. With four new commissions planned for the public realm in Greater Manchester, these timely talks will each address the differing logistical, conceptual and social aspects of public sculpture.
