SYLVIA PANKHURST: WORKING WOMEN
Jan 19 - Apr 29, 2018 FINAL WEEK
In the centenary year for Women’s Suffrage in Britain – when women over 30 got the right to vote for the first time, we are showing a selection of paintings and pastels by Sylvia Pankhurst (1882-1960). The daughter of Emmeline Pankhurst, the leader of the Women’s Social and Political Union, Sylvia was a prominent Suffragette, and later an anti-fascist campaigner, as well as being an artist. She trained at Manchester School of Art, winning the prize for best female student in 1901, going on to win a scholarship to the Royal College of Art, London.

SPEECH ACTS : REFLECTION-IMAGINATION-REPETITION
May 25, 2018 - Apr 22, 2019
What stories emerge to frame the visitor’s encounters with the art that they see, and cloak the art that they don’t? How do these stories change over time?
 
Through the work of more than 40 artists, Speech Acts: Reflection-Imagination- Repetition considers how public museums reflect and shape our collective imagination, and examines how exhibitions can affect these shared narratives.
