Tuesday 16 October – Alice Kettle
Alice Kettle, Professor of Textile Arts at Manchester Metropolitan University, is known for her large-scale figurative textile works that combine a painterly imagination with a commitment to the craft of embroidery. Her talk accompanies her current exhibition, Thread Bearing Witness, at the Whitworth. For this project, Kettle has worked with refugees and refugee organisations in the UK and overseas and directly with individual asylum seekers from Afghanistan, Uganda and Syria to empower them to tell their stories through art and to respond through her own monumental works.
