The landmark exhibition Lowry and the Painting of Modern Life, recently opened at Tate Britain, has provided an excellent backdrop to showcase the breadth of The Lowry’s work and its impressive contribution to the cultural economy of the UK.
On Tuesday 9 July, The Lowry is in London, presenting an array of work that captures what it has achieved and celebrates the vibrancy of the Arts outside of London. A new film has been commissioned capturing a snapshot of The Lowry’s work including interviews from across the nation’s artistic community, including Sir Nicholas Hytner, Annie Lennox, Matthew Bourne and Maxine Peake.
The Lowry is home to one of the most ambitious artistic programmes and has for many years been the most visited cultural destination in the North West. On a local level, the organisation engages around 35,000 people each year from its nearest communities in programmes that nurture talent, develop skills and employability and inspire community regeneration.
The Lowry in London event will showcase a range of exciting artistic partnerships including work by:
- Theatre ad Infinitum
- Company Chameleon
- Rambert Dance Company
- And an extract from the production that had its world premiere at The Lowry, Obama the Mamba, President of the Slums
