Art Bites online 27 April

45 minutes, 2 art works, your opinions and ideas

If you can’t get to Manchester Art Gallery join us online.

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.

What is Art Bites?

A team of staff and volunteers lead a discussion focussing on two art works on display.

It is 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 repels 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.

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!

We will be using the platform Zoom to bring people together.

You can access zoom through a laptop, tablet or smart phone, just something that has a camera and mic. You don’t need to create an account to access the session.

Want to join in?

Please book through Eventbrite and select the correct date.

You will be emailed a link just before the start of the session and images of the art works we will be discussing.

There is a limit of 20 people in each session.

Art bites runs every two weeks online, so if you can’t book on this one, join us another week.

You can also join us for Art Bites at the gallery every other week.
