Thursday 26th April, don’t miss the opportunity to hear a fascinating talk by Anna Arabindan-Kesson. Arabindan-Kesson is a History of Art and African-American studies academic travelling from Yale University, USA to discuss issues around the representation of cotton production in the States.
The talk, programmed to accompany the current Whitworth exhibition COTTON: Global Threads is entitled Networks of Labour: Representing Cotton in Nineteenth-Century America. The talk will examine some of the ways that representations of cotton were shaped by the creation of labour networks between different spaces, such as the relationship between the plantation and the factory.
Entry is free and includes a complimentary glass of wine after the talk.
