The Tuesday Talks series are a collaboration between the Whitworth Art Gallery and Manchester Metropolitan University, and as the Whitworth transforms into a 21st century gallery in the park, the talks will be held at MMU.
The Tuesday Talks invites leading artists, thinkers and curators to explore the driving forces, influences and sources of inspiration within contemporary art and is programmed by Professor Pavel Büchler and Bryony Bond.

David Jacques is a multi-media artist primarily involved with film. His practice engages with the subject of history, its narrative interpretations and the interplay between factual and fictional strategies of representation. For this Tuesday Talk Jacques will screen a new short film, The Dionysians of West Lancs. An essay film that weaves through age-old tensions – Acts of Enclosure, defence of the Commons, freedom of association and assembly. The narrative is geographically played out around tracts of land running up the coastline of West Lancashire.
In 2010 Jacques won the Liverpool Art Prize and was shortlisted for the Northern Art Prize. Recent screenings of his work include; Tate Liverpool ‘Art turning Left’, 17th International Video Festival VIDEOMEDEJA Novi Sad Serbia, WNDX Film Festival Winnipeg Canada and Sheffield Fringe at BLOC Projects Sheffield. He lives and works in Liverpool.
