‘Everything I Know, I Felt’ is an experiential exhibition exploring the diverse emotional experiences of womxn. Celebrating big feelings in all their messy, multifaceted glory, the work embraces emotional intelligence and questions the societal value of vulnerability.
The exhibition provides a visually stimulating, tactile and empowering space for response, reflection and connection, including interactive installations, community projects, film, photography, performance, painting and poetry.
Comprised of new commissions and collaborations, the curation echoes the collective’s ethos to platform local talent, showcasing work from Manchester’s creative community, exhibiting at The Lowry for the first time.
Alongside the exhibition is a programme of events from parties, panels and performances to drink and draws, destruction, debates and a teen takeover. Details of events below.
