STRANGE PERFUME IS GOING TO MANCHESTER WITH BOOK WORKS

 

STRANGE PERFUME

CHETHAM'S LIBRARY

LONG MILLGATE, MANCHESTER, M3 1SB

13 OCTOBER 11 - 6

 

We will be announcing the list of the participants in late August.

 

 

We have been invited to work with Book Works (Louisa Bailey, Jane Rolo, and Paul Sammut) to organise a book fair to run alongside Simon Grennan's exhibition and book launch at Chetham’s Library in Manchester on Saturday the 13th of October. Simon's book ‘Drawing in Drag by Marie Duval' is based on Victorian illustrator, Marie Duval, who made work under a male pseudonym. Keen to explore the themes of Simon's book Book Works have called on us to put together a Strange Perfume event, in all our queer glory!

 

Chetham’s Library is the oldest free public library in the English speaking world and has been designated as one of national and international importance, having begun acquiring books in August 1655, and adding to its collections ever since. It's a really unique building (very different to the SLG!) and we're excited to get organising this very special event.
