IETM Hull 2019 Artistic Programme:
Jackie Hagan is a working class, queer amputee. Annoyed by the media portrayal of her kind, Jackie interviewed 80 people living on disability benefits and interweaves snippets of these conversations with her own experiences in this hilarious and poignant solo show exploring our attitudes towards class and disability.
The performance will be followed by a Q&A with the artist.
The Ferens has a magnificent collection of paintings and sculptures, including works by European Old Masters, portraiture, marine painting, and modern and contemporary British art. Highlights include masterpieces by Lorenzetti, Frans Hals, Antonio Canaletto, Frederick Leighton, Stanley Spencer, David Hockney, Helen Chadwick and Gillian Wearing.
