Tentative Collective

Tentative Collective’s projects are lived engagements with the sensory and social architectures of the city.

Saturday 30 September 2017–Sunday 25 February 2018


Please note, Tentative Collective’s performance has been postponed.

Tentative Collective are unable to deliver their programmed performance because visas were not granted for the artists on initial application. Given the short period of time left for a reapplication, Manchester Art Gallery decided that it would be more sensible to reschedule their work for the coming months. Instead of their planned performance, the artists will present a work in the form of a poster and letter as a response, in the gallery and online.
