Raqib Shaw
MANCHESTER ART GALLERY
7PM – 8.15PM THURSDAY MAY 9TH 2013
BAR OPENS 6PM – FREE DRINKS FOR STUDENTS

An evening of conviviality and provocation to coincide with the exhibition Raqib Shaw at the Manchester Art Gallery

Promiscuously mixing Eastern and Western iconographies, combining visual seduction with perverse violence, flirting openly with kitsch and luxuriant excess, Shaw has divided the critical establishment – while becoming a massive success on the international art scene.

Our expert speakers will present four pithy provocations to a free and fun audience discussion.
Speakers include: Dr Anirudha Dhanawade (University of Manchester), Dr Natasha Eaton (University College London), Dr Satish Padiyar (Courtauld Institute of Art), and Professor David Lomas (University of Manchester).

Brought to you by the ManchesterArtGroup, a student collective in the Art History department at the University of Manchester. Find us on Facebook
