“Art is where we go with our sadness….it is like a memorial to our best possibilities.” With this sensitive insight, philosopher Alain de Botton reminds us that the works we encounter in gallery spaces can illuminate a great deal about ourselves.
Join volunteer guide John Ward in an exploration of the many ways in which Manchester Art Gallery’s unique collection can help us to make sense of life’s mundanities, disappointments, trials and joys.
