After a successful exhibition at The Irish Museum of Modern Art in Dublin the exhibition Derek Jarman: Protest! was planned to be in display this year from 21st May until 31st October 2021 at Manchester Art Gallery but the opening has been postponed to 1st December 2021.
The curator of the exhibition is Fiona Corridan.
Until then the Gallery presents a selection of Derek Jarman’s content online including Mark Jordan’s film Leaving Time, where Derek Jarman was filmed in his studio talking about morality, the tabloid press and the terminology applied to people’s sexuality.
A full transcript of an interview with Jarman from Jon Savage, made as a research for his book England’s dreaming: Sex Pistols and Punk Rock.
A documentary film from Mark Kidel named Arena: Derek Jarman – A Portrait which was made simultaneously with the release of The Garden.
There is also an exhibition catalogue available online in the Manchester Art Gallery web shop.
