The Whitworth reopened in February 2015 with a major solo exhibition from one of Britain’s most acclaimed contemporary artists, Cornelia Parker. Her work invites you to witness the transformation of ordinary objects into something compelling and extraordinary.
It is an extensive exhibition, one that features a wide range of work made during Parker’s career, from her signature piece Cold Dark Matter: An Exploded View (1991) alongside two important new commissions and many other new works.
This lavish catalogue includes installation photographs and images of several works made specially for her Manchester show, including the graphene related work, Blakeian Abstract.
Published to accompany Cornelia Parker’s mid-career survey exhibition at the Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester, 14 February – 31 May 2015.
