Artist Talk – Elin O’Hara Slavick

Elin O' Hara Slavick Talk

Free talk by American artist Elin O’Hara Slavick to mark the end of the exhibition Dark Matters

To mark the end of the exhibition Dark Matters: Shadow_Technology_Art at the Whitworth , we are delighted to welcome participating American artist Elin O’Hara Slavick to the gallery to speak about her fascinating work. Slavick’s works of abstract beauty expose the horror of war and, in particular the aftermath of bombing. Slavick will speak about her drawing project and subsequent book, ‘Protesting Cartography – Bomb After Bomb’ and will focus primarily upon her haunting work ‘Hiroshima: After Aftermath’ within the context of shadow, technology and art.

This is a free event and will take place at 2pm in the Whitworth Art Gallery Lecture Theatre.
The lecture will be preceded at 1pm by a tour of Dark Matters with its curator, Helen Stalker.
