WINK WINK: Guided Tour and Discussion

Join us for a guided tour with Garth Gratrix, curator of the WINK WINK exhibition, which will be followed by a Q&A session with Garth, WINK WINK artists Sarah-Joy Ford and Chester Tenneson, and Dominic Bilton - who is Project Producer and co-curator of (un)defining Queer at The Whitworth.

In this curated discussion, we’ll be considering the exhibition more closely with each artist discussing their creative process and artistic practice before we think about the idea of museums and galleries as queer spaces.
