Please pre-book here

Coinciding with the exhibition 40 Years of the Future: Painting, Kacey Stonnell, Nadia Gribi and Natalie Ohana-Cole, History of Art students at The University of Manchester are delivering a student-led presentation to explore the artworks and backgrounds of the unique artists in the exhibition. This event encourages people to learn about these artists and their exploration of abstract art guided by the artists’ own words, collected through typed interviews conducted by the students. The intention is to offer an insight into the development of these artists, with a focus on how time has influenced their artistic and personal journey.
