Joana Vasconcelos: Time Machine

Exhibition, Manchester Art Gallery 15 February – 1 June.
Fresh from her success representing Portugal at the 55th Venice Biennale, Joana Vasconcelos will bring her seductive and subversive large-scale sculptures to Manchester for an exclusive site-specific exhibition at Manchester Art Gallery. This major new show will feature over twenty of the Portuguese artist’s most significant sculptures, which will fill the gallery’s major exhibition spaces, adorn the exterior of the gallery and act as interventions with the gallery’s permanent collection in spaces across the whole gallery building. The exhibition will feature the world premiere of a monumental new textile work that has been specially commissioned as a site-specific installation for Manchester Art Gallery’s atrium and staircase.
