Manchester Art Gallery

Art Bites online 23 December

We can’t run events in the gallery at the moment, so we’ve moved these discussions online.

What is Art Bites?

Art bites is a session that usually runs every Wednesday lunchtime live in the gallery. A team of staff and volunteers lead a discussion focussing on two art works on display.

It is basically a chat about art sharing opinions and ideas. We discuss what we see, what we think about it, what it makes us think of, how it inspires us or repells us, what we find curious about it, how our own life experiences connect with it. It’s based on the idea that we all have something to say about a visual image based on our experiences.

You don’t need to have an art history degree to understand art works, and the experience of a shared discussion can give us new perspectives.

We focus on two art works that might have a similar theme but may have been created in very different ways.

The facilitator will ask a series of questions to get the conversation going and then we see where it takes us!

Uncertain Futures: Women over 50 and work

Inequalities in work affecting women over 50 in Manchester and Covid 19

Join our team for the launch and a virtual round-table discussion of an exciting and unique participatory art project in collaboration with women over in 50 in Manchester, due to be installed in the gallery in Spring 2020. Uncertain Futures is a cross-sectional art work aimed at raising public awareness of inequalities at work affecting diverse groups of women over 50 years in Manchester, exposed by the pandemic based on their own personal narratives. The event will hear from members of the Advisory Board of Uncertain Futures namely:

Dr Erinma Bell – Director: Carisma
Nadia Siddiqui – Director: Women’s Voices
Circle Steele – CEO: Wai Yin Society
Marie Greenhalgh – Director: Wythenshawe Good Neighbours

The virtual round-table will give a voice to these women to describe, debate and expose the inequalities they have faced in work during this time and to uncover the often overlooked strengths of these women. The event is organised by a team representing researchers from the University of Manchester (Elaine Dewhurst) and Manchester Metropolitan University (Sarah Campbell), the artist, Suzanne Lacy, University of Southern California and Ruth Edson from Manchester Art Gallery.

Free but please book your place

We look forward to seeing you!
