This exhibition has now closed, find out what else is going on at The Whitworth

The Whitworth presents the most extensive exhibition of the work of Elizabeth Price to date.

Bringing together many new and acclaimed works including video, sculpture and prints, this exhibition engages with Price’s preoccupations of technology, history, politics and pop music. A new trilogy of video works, SLOW DANS, is being premiered and her Turner Prize winning THE WOOLWORTHS CHOIR OF 1979, remembering that fatal fire in Manchester, is being shown in the city for the first time.

In an architectural setting designed by Elizabeth Price, the exhibition debuts new prints, pinhole photographs and the new video trilogy SLOW DANS, consisting of KOHL, FELT TIP and THE TEACHERS, the latter newly commissioned by Artangel and the Whitworth.

Each work in the exhibition touches upon recent social and political histories ranging from the systematic abandonment of coal mines, through technological and demographic revolutions of the office, to the corporatisation of education.
