Manchester wins Richard Wentworth for Museums at Night 2013!

06 Mar 2013

A big thank you to everyone who voted for The Manchester Museum, Whitworth Art Gallery and Manchester Art Gallery to win Richard during the weekend of 16-18 May.

Connect 10

Richard Wentworth has played a leading role in New British Sculpture since the end of the 70s. His work has altered the traditional definition of sculpture as well as photography, subversively transforming and manipulating industrial and/or found objects into works of art.

A playful Connect10 event will launch the whole city’s Museums at Night Weekender (16-18 May) in an event at The Manchester Museum, Whitworth Art Gallery and Manchester Art Gallery, by inviting Manchester’s most ardent amateur collectors to help Richard curate a pop-up exhibition that night, drawing on museum and hobby collections.

This sociable event (co-hosted with Creative Tourist) will explore the story of a city and its people via its collections, and will include a collectors’ fair with stalls and meet-ups for those children and adults united in their passion to collect.
