Museum Exhibition

Raqib Shaw at the Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester


24 June - 19 November 2017

Works by Raqib Shaw examining real and imagined spaces between the East and West go on show at the Whitworth Art Gallery in Manchester. The exhibition brings together Shaw’s paintings of fantastical worlds with historic textiles, drawings and furniture from the Whitworth’s collection.

A new wallpaper by the artist has been designed especially for the exhibition, which is co-curated by Dr Maria Balshaw, Director of Tate, Diana Campbell Betancourt, Director of Dhaka Art Summit, and the artist.

The show is presented as part of New North and South, a network of eleven arts organisations promoting leading Bangladeshi, Indian, Pakistani, Sri Lankan and UK artists through exhibitions and events.
