Whitworth Art Gallery in Manchester, Cornelia Parker exhibition

Manchester 1This past Saturday the ADM 5205 Off The Wall course took the train to the newly refurbished

Whitworth Art Gallery in Manchester to see the Cornelia Parker exhibition. In addition to some of

her well known works such as ‘the exploding shed’, the’ bullet drawings’, and the ‘steamrolled

silver’, the exhibition also featured some new pieces including The War Room, which in fact has a

direct reference to the poppy factory in the Borough of Richmond.


The students and faculty involved were: Bianca Lopez, Victoria Marques-Pinto, Morgan Maurais,

Monica Meyer, Bisha Mirza, Ayesia Yousaf, MA students Anastasia Fjodorova, Julie Napientek, and

Professor Mary Robert.
