If you haven’t seen Tibor Recih and Nico Vascellari’s exhibitions at Manchester’s Whitworth yet, time is quickly running out.

Post-ward textile designer Tibor Reich’s exhibition runs until 28 August.  The exhibition, honouring design heritage, evaluates the way in which he shaped design discourse throughout the mid-twentieth century. Featuring Reich’s innovative textiles, photography, ceramics and drawings, from his studies in Vienna to the formation of the ground-breaking Tibor Ltd.

A year after his performance at the Whitworth reopening weekend artist Nico Vascellari returned to Manchester with a large solo exhibition throughout the Landscape Gallery, running until 18 September 2016.

In Bus de la Lum and Darvaza visitors have been transported into locations from the artist’s own childhood, each surrounded in legend and hidden history.  Using light, shadow and an extraordinary soundtrack created in collaboration with Turkish-born musician Ghedalia Tazartes the works recreate the eerie haunted forests of Northern Italy, combining performance, sculpture video and sound.
