Friday 13 January
Talk starts at 2pm, free

To mark the end of the exhibition Dark Matters: Shadow_Technology_Art at the Whitworth , we are delighted to welcome participating American artist Elin O’Hara Slavick to the gallery to speak about her fascinating work. Slavick’s works of abstract beauty expose the horror of war and, in particular the aftermath of bombing. Slavick will speak about her drawing project and subsequent book, ‘Protesting Cartography – Bomb After Bomb’ and will focus primarily upon her haunting work ‘Hiroshima: After Aftermath’ within the context of shadow, technology and art.

This is a free event and will take place at 2pm in the Whitworth Art Gallery Lecture Theatre.
The lecture will be preceded by a tour of Dark Matters by exhibition curator Helen Stalker at 1pm.
