A look back to the David Lynch takeover at HOME

Last summer, David Lynch took over HOME with his art, film, music and more! Every corner of HOME was inhabited by a Lynchian spirit for Manchester International Festival. Today we’re taking a look back at this unique season of events with videos from the events, images and audio from the art exhibition and film recommendations that you can enjoy in your homes.

Video Link Q+A

On Sat 6 July 2019, HOME and Manchester International Festival hosted a live video Q&A with David Lynch.

It marked the opening day of My Head is Disconnected, the first major UK exhibition of visual art by David Lynch.

Curator Sarah Perks hosted the in-conversation via live video link with Lynch covering his diverse artistic practice, from his iconic film and TV work to his paintings, drawings and sculptures.
