Our Stories at St. James’ Tower (pictured)
St. James’ Tower in Chinatown hosts this new documentary photography exhibition curated by The Photographic Angle, a charity that promotes and produces touring photography shows. Our Stories, which runs in the modern office building’s exhibition space until Tuesday, brings together photographers from all over the world and challenges them to tell a story with a picture. What’s found within are tales of struggle, desperation and also hope – told through simple depictions of ordinary life in extraordinary places.
Sat 8 Jun – Tue 12 Jun, St James’s Tower, 7 Charlotte Street, Manchester, M1 4DZ, 9am – 5pm, www.thephotographicangle.co.uk
Andrew Hill at Manchester Art Gallery
This event is part of Manchester’s ongoing Ruskin Bicentenary: A program of events celebrating the life of art critic and patron John Ruskin. Financial Times editor Andrew Hill recently authored a book on Ruskin, which he will be discussing as part of this talk covering Ruskin’s life and impact upon our modern understanding of art, as well as the works of Ford Madox Brown – one of the most celebrated artists’ of Ruskin’s age. At the time of writing, this event is sold out, but it’s always worth checking for returns on the day.
Sat 8 Jun, Manchester Art Gallery, Mosley Street, Manchester, M2 3JL, 2pm – 3pm, www.eventbrite.co.uk
The Lost Boys Screening at 70 Oxford Street
MMU hosts a symposium on the subject of ‘The Gothic 1980s: The Decade That Scared Us’ this weekend, and to close things out they’re putting on a screening of hair metal vampire flick The Lost Boys. The 1987 film stars Jason Patric and Kiefer Sutherland as photogenic teen vampires in a sleepy suburban town, and uses gothic archetypes to explore the anxieties of Reagan’s America. This event is in partnership with Pilot Light TV Festival.
Sat 8 Jun, 70 Oxford Street, Manchester, M1 5NH, 7pm – 9pm, www.eventbrite.com
