Manchester Art Gallery
Saturday 8 February 2020, 2pm–3pm
Free, booking required
Art Talks with Art Fund.
Adeela Suleman is one of Pakistan’s most eminent artists. She makes works which incorporate traditional South Asian craft techniques and motifs to explore contemporary social and political issues.
This event celebrates Manchester Art Gallery’s acquisition of Suleman’s sculpture After All It’s Always Someone Else Who Dies 2017, a large scale work in glimmering hand crafted steel which explores the links between historic and contemporary violence. It is the first example of this internationally acclaimed artist’s work in a UK public collection.
Suleman will discuss how her work is shaped by living and working in Karachi, Pakistan and the challenges of working in a country which has a rich visual heritage which is foregrounded by its volatile history and current affairs.
Art Talks with Art Fund, a national programme of artist talks around contemporary art in museums across the UK.
The talk will be held in Studio 1.
