On 25th May the Manchester Art Group will be hosting a panel discussion with several curators from Manchester and further to talk about their experiences. The talk will last for an hour and then there will be a chance to ask the speakers questions.

If you are planning a career in curation or are simply intrigued, this is a great way for all students and non-students to gain insight into what is involved and how you get there.

The talk will be held in the Kanaris Lecture Theatre in the Manchester Museum, Oxford Road at 2-3.30pm.

Speakers are:
Jen Wu, Artist and Curator.

Confirmation of other speakers will be updated shortly!

After the panel there will be an opening of the new exhibition in the ManCoop Corridor Gallery ‘To Live is to Leave Traces’. Taking inspiration from this quote by Walter Benjamin, artists have responded through various mediums.

What better trace is there than art?

The opening will take place shortly after the panel, about 4pm, in the Mansfield Cooper Building at University of Manchester just round the corner. Hopefully our guest speakers will be popping down to look also!

Free drinks will be served too!

Both events will give understanding into how curating works from both professional and student perspectives!

See you there!
