Gilbert and George in the Witworth Gallery. The humour ans often sarcastic criticism really hits a spot for me and on their photographs I really enjoy the stained glass effect.

Harry Kivijärvi's Eukleides in Serlachius Museum, Mänttä. I just found it visually and geometrically very pleasing.

"The Sirens and Ulysses" 1837 by William Etty in Manchester Art Museum. This oil painting is striking and massive in size. In it's time this painting was scorned for it's juxtaposition of nudity and death. Etty was sketching real bodies in morgues to model the bodies in the fore front.

Works from Sophia Al-Maria in CornerHouse Manchester: Virgin with a memory. The gallery was a collage of her hopefully upcoming movie Beretta. This installation shows the villains of her piece in a very intense sort of way. I really hope that she can work out all the juridical and financial issues with the film for I at least am really looking forward to it.
