Exhibitions in Manchester and the NorthMaja Lorkowska, Exhibitions Editor
This month’s more summery art offering is varied indeed – from outdoor sculpture and musings on water to big contemporary art festivals, get your diary ready because it’s a busy one!
First of all – Liverpool Biennial is back! With exhibitions all around the city, the country’s biggest festival of contemporary art showcases the work of over 30 international artists and collectives. We take a closer look at one of the main exhibition in the brand new Tobacco Warehouse.
Castlefield Gallery opens The Poetics of Water featuring the work of artists Jessica El Mal and Parham Ghalamdar. In fact, Ghalamdar’s work also features in WINK WINK, a fantastically diverse group show at the Whitaker exploring queerness.
And that’s not all! In the green fields of Yorkshire Sculpture Park, you’ll find the absurd sculptures of Erwin Wurm, taking place both in the Underground Gallery as well as outdoors. Further north, Cross Lane Projects’ Late and Soon showcases the risqué, politically-charged works of Margaret Harrison and Conrad Atkinson.
