Dab Hands exhibition tour
with the artist, Lucy Burscough
‘Dab Hands’ celebrates the extraordinary relationship that we have with our hands. It reveals the value of the skills that can be acquired by repetition and practice, whilst acknowledging the grief and frustration that can disrupt that relationship when illness, trauma, or old age affects our dexterity.
Lucy creates art with medical and social themes in public and clinical spaces with the intention of boosting health and wellbeing and telling patients’ stories. She is currently our Artist in Residence.
Dab Hands is funded by The National Lottery, Arts Council England and Manchester Museum.
