Personal Feeling Is the Main Thing – Chantal Joffe

19 May – 2 September 2018

As part of The Lowry’s second Week 53 Festival, Chantal Joffe’s fearless paintings confront the physicality of the human body and the complexities of human emotions in a remarkable combination of detachment, humour and intimacy.

Regarded as one of the most distinctive and uncompromising figurative artists working today, Chantal Joffe’s fearless paintings of women and girls often share glimpses of her own relationship with her daughter, while exploring transitions into adolescence and motherhood. They confront the physicality of the human body and the complexities of human emotions in a remarkable combination of detachment, humour and intimacy.

This exhibition forms part of the Royal Academy’s 250th anniversary. Other venues, including Salford Museum & Art Gallery and Ordsall Hall, will also be part of the Salford Takeover. Find out more here.
