A Manchester Weekender Event
Sunday 13 October, 3.15pm
Main Exhibition Space (all ages)
Set against the backdrop of Daniel Libeskind’s award-winning building, representing a globe shattered by conflict, visitors will be led around the museum while a town crier reads aloud the thought-provoking listings of wars that have occurred during the artist’s lifetime. Callanan’s work, Wars During My Lifetime is a newspaper listing that features in the new major exhibition Catalyst: Contemporary Art and War. It is a fascinating - and rapidly expanding - document that makes no comment but brings the list to our attention. This piece will be performed live for the first time since its original commission for Whitstable Biennale in 2012.
