At last, the Whitworth re-opens.
Following a major refurbishment and extending throughout its existing gallery space and into Whitworth Park itself, this beautiful gallery re-opens at last with ten stunning new exhibitions to sit within it's newly restored or newly created spaces.
From Cornelia Parker's astonishing collection to Sarah Lucas and her cheeky 'Tits in Space', through to the sublime and moving beauty of gunpowder work from Cai Guo-Qiang, the opening shows are internationally significant.
But it's the space itself which impresses as much as the work within. With great sensitivty to history, nature and the surroundings, this new version of the Whitworth leaps way beyond its former position as a minor partner to the Manchester Art Gallery.
It is now truly world class.
