Jade Montserrat in conversation with Nikita Gill

Artist Jade Montserrat and Curator Nikita Gill will be in conversation about the future plans for the recently launched exhibition project ‘Constellations: Care & Resistance’ at Manchester Art Gallery. The exhibition constitutes an active research space supporting Montserrat in creating new work to be acquired, exhibited and displayed by the Gallery. The gallery will be used both to exhibit works, curated by Gill (who has operated as a proxy for Montserrat whilst the artist is unable to attend the gallery, as in the recent online performance ‘Drawing Out’) and also as a space for discussion and pedagogy. This event marks the beginning of a year-long conversation around the exhibition which will inform the content of a publication. The book will act as a document of the project itself but also as a continued development on themes that arise during its duration.
