Jonathan Schofield caught up withTurner Prize winning artist Anish Kapoor for Creative Tourist when he was in the city for the launch of his exhibition Flashback at Manchester Art Gallery.  In this interview, Kapoor sheds light on stepping back from meaning in abstract art, enjoying the beauty of his sculptures and the importance of the viewer in his work.

Culture Guides

Benjamin Myers by Julian Germain Dunelm.

Literature

March sees talks and tours, birthdays and anniversaries, writers’ conferences and development days, and some rather big names on the literature scene.

Music

Why not try some new music for the new year? How about a residency (or two) in a former mill, an original take on a film soundtrack, or the cream of Manchester’s current music scene coming together for an action-packed all-dayer?

The Suppliant Women

Theatre

This month we’ve got something very old, a couple of things rather new, something borrowed from the Americans and something dressed in Oldham Athletic blue.

Cinema

This month, we round up some of the disreputable treasures and genuinely ambitious pieces of film art that are screening around Manchester and the North.

Exhibitions

They say a picture is worth a thousand words – so, perhaps, can an object be, as our current selection of the very best exhibitions in Manchester and the North proves.

Families

It’s all about how to make the world a better place at People’s History Museum and SICK! Festival, a ridiculous art race through the forest, swashbuckling historical heroism and imaginative theatrical adventures. Phew.
