‘Deeds Not Words’ Manchester School of Art Exhibition

‘Deeds not Words’ is an exhibition curated by students from Manchester School of Art in response to the 1913 attack on Manchester Art Gallery. by Suffragettes. Students will return to the moment when art was used as a political took for making visible the demands of the women’s suffrage movement, resulting in a new publication, exhibition and fundraiser for The Pankhurst Centre.

The exhibition is part of the School of Art’s Unit X which brings together students from different disciplines to work on live project briefs created by a wide range of partner organisations working with our academic staff. The unit culminates in the Unit X Festival, a week of pop-up events and exhibitions that transforms spaces throughout the city into urban galleries and event spaces. This festival celebrate the outcomes of the Unit X project, created by some of Manchester’s best up and coming artists, designers, filmmakers and photographers.

Private View on 4 May, 5.30-7.30pm.
