Deanna Petherbridge exhibition opens at The Whitworth, Manchester

Deanna Petherbridge exhibition opens at The Whitworth, Manchester

Since the 1960s, Deanna Petherbridge’s practice has moved between making drawings and writing critically about art and architecture. She has designed murals and stage-sets, curated exhibitions, taught in the studio and lectured internationally – a career trajectory that anticipated the multiple practices of younger conceptual artists. Drawing is her primary concern – both as an artist and as a historian of practice. This exhibition brings together more than 40 works from across her career, including the Manchester Suite – a collection of drawings made during her six-month residency at Manchester Art Gallery in 1982.

A new monograph, Deanna Petherbridge – Drawing and Dialogue, published to coincide with the exhibition, celebrates the vitality and originality of this extraordinary body of work.
