Does Art History Matter? at The Whitworth
Manchester University’s Art History Society hosts this afternoon talk at The Whitworth on Monday. They’ve invited self-described ‘art critic baby gods’ The White Pube – the collective moniker for critics Gabrielle de la Puente and Zarina Muhammad – to tackle the question of whether art history still matters today, or if it ever did. This event is currently listed as Sold Out online, but it’s always worth checking for returns on the day.
Mon 13 May, The Whitworth, Oxford Road, Manchester, M15 6ER, 3.30pm – 4.30pm,
