The 54th Pilkington Lecture
Speaker: Dr Sook-Kyung Lee, Director of the Whitworth Art Gallery
TITLE: SOFT AND WEAK LIKE WATER: ON THE POWER OF ART
Friends of the Whitworth are delighted to welcome Sook-Kyung Lee as the 2023 Pilkington Lecturer.
It is a huge honour for me to take up the role of Director at the Whitworth, one of the most innovative and audience-focused art institutions in the UK and internationally. I have admired the Whitworth’s commitment to work with local communities and to use art for positive social change. I would like to further develop the gallery in its artistic rigour and social impacts and to widen its global connections, along with the gallery’s dedicated staff and The University of Manchester.
