The Whitworth

24 March 2018 – 7 April 2019

Exchanges sets art and artists together, sometimes in harmony, sometimes in opposition – always with insight and intention.

Hayley Tompkins, Currents II, 2011

Works by Gillian Wearing, William Hogarth and Louise Bourgious and Tracey Emin encourage dialogue about expectations of female behavior.

Rebecca Warren and Hayley Tompkins elevate discarded objects to the status of art and challenge our ideas about what should be shown in museums, while Simon Patterson, Jitish Kallat, Roni Horn and Stephen Willats consider how we make order out of a disordered world.

Over the year some of the art will be exchanged for more recent acquisitions, activating new dialogues between the works displayed.
