17 January - Deanna Petherbridge
Deanna Petherbridge, artist, curator, author and an influential teacher is a committed practitioner and passionate advocate of the art of drawing. Her attitudes to drawing, its historical legacy and continued contemporary relevance, are evident from the titles of her book The Primacy of Drawing: Histories and Theories of Practice (Yale University Press, 2010) and Drawing as Vital Practice, a survey of eight international artists which accompanied her 2008 exhibition at Sir John Soane's country house, Ealing. A representative selection of 40 works spanning her entire career is currently on show at the Whitworth. While these works are thematically linked by the artist's interest in the resonance of history in cities and landscapes, Petherbridge's preoccupations also include art and anatomy, vernacular architecture, and body politics - a theme explored recently in her curated exhibition Witches and Wicked Bodies at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh (2013).
The Whitworth, 12.30-2.00pm, free, no booking necessary.
The Tuesday Talks series presents leading artists, thinkers and curators who explore the driving forces, influences and sources of inspiration within contemporary art. The series is a collaboration between the Whitworth and Manchester Metropolitan University and is programmed by Pavel Büchler.
