The Changing Face of the North West: Modernist Dreams and Utopias #6
Manchester on the Move
18th April 2013
6.30pm until 8.15pm
The North West Film Archive and the Manchester Modernisty Society, in conjunction with Manchester Metropolitan University, present three short films about post-war transport and infrastructure in the North West, sourced from the North West Film Archive.
The evening will be introduced by Richard Brook (Manchester School of Architecture), who co-organised the well-received Infra_Manc Exhibition at Cube in 2012. There will also be an opportunity for questions and answers afterwards.
Guests should arrive from 6pm for a prompt start at 6.30pm in the lecture theatre. The event will finish at approximately 8.15pm.
Come early and get a drink or snack from the Gallery Cafe, to enjoy during the film showing.
The Manchester Modernist Society, the North West Film Archive and Manchester Metropolitan University Geography department are pleased to bring to Manchester Art Gallery a curated programme of archive films charting the transformation of the North West landscape through the aspirations of 20th Century dreamers, citizens and planners.
