Manchester: Ruskin-Free-City at The Portico Library
The Portico Library hosts this discussion as part of the bicentennial of art critic John Ruskin, a man who once said that “Manchester can produce no good art and no good literature”. This event aims to provide Manchester’s response to this challenge, looking at how Manchester has come to appreciate the social value of art. Gallery director Alistair Hudson, Cuban artist Tania Bruguera and Big People Music’s Tunde Adekoya lead this lively discussion. At the time of writing, this event is marked as Sold Out online, but it’s always worth checking on the day.
Wed 17 Jul, The Portico Library, 57 Mosley Street, Manchester, M2 3HY, 6pm – 7.30pm,
