  • Chetham's Library Long Millgate Manchester, England United Kingdom (map)

Come along to the launch of the comic book 'Drawing in Drag by Marie Duval', a first look at the exhibition, and hear author and artist Simon Grennan in conversation with Christopher Breward. Based on an illustrated Victorian novel from the collections at Chetham's Library, the book and exhibition of drawings focuses on the manners and habits of twenty-first century leisure culture and its roots in the great cities of the nineteenth century. Artist and graphic novelist Simon Grennan reimagines Duval's work from a contemporary perspective, adopting her name as a pseudonym and 'drawing in drag', as a woman.
