Manchester Literature Festival and The Whitworth have co-commissioned poet and playwright Rommi Smith to respond to the exhibition Bodies of Colour. Spanning three hundred years to the present day, the exhibition looks at the representation of race and ethnicity in wallpaper, and includes work by Sonya Bryce, Robert Gober and Niki de Saint Phalle. Rommi will perform her new poems at a special event accompanied by pianist Dave Evans, composer, musician and band leader with the Afro-Jazz outfit Ubunye.
