In Series Warp festival

The Whitworth, Manchester’s gallery in the park, hosted a warped weekend of art, music and the unexpected beneath the trees. Programmed by 15-25 year olds from across Greater Manchester, the festival celebrated the installation of a major new sculpture in Whitworth Park by the Turner Prize-nominated artist, Anya Gallaccio.

Whitworth Young Contemporaries, a youth arts collective, masterminded this free festival of music, performance and workshops. They invited their peers to experience the gallery and the park in a completely different way with a series of events connecting to Anya’s work through the themes of folklore, trees and memory.
