Book mcrmuseum.eventbrite.com or ring 0161 275 2648 free, adults
A presentation of 'After the Bees' project including video, poetry and arts writing.
Extra text 'After the bees' is a series of visual artworks collaborating, moving image, portraiture, photography, arts writing
and sculpture, exploring the narrative premise of Einstein's prediction "If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe then man would only have four years of life left".
‘After the bees’ is a presentation of different modes of language: visual, poetic, myth, storytelling, scientific and factual, producing a dialogue about bees, which relate to ideas of connectivity and attachment.
The project will be informed by beekeepers, ecologists and sustainability experts, producing an original narrative exploring the conservation issues affecting bees through artistic practice.
The project will result in a screening, exhibition of photography and artist talk at Manchester Museum in 2016.
This will be followed by a talk at Manchester City Gallery, a solo show at Winterbourne House and Gardens, and a research seminar with postgraduate students of the Art History department at The University of Manchester
