Don't Say You Haven't...

Seen ... the satire of a young man. Richard Newton was 21 when he died, but he produced more than 200 prints of colourful caricature during what some consider the medium's heyday at the end of the 18th century. Contemporary audiences will enjoy their lampooning of the Royal family, the Church and the battle of the sexes. One of the most striking effects is in the hand-colouring by women and children. Many of the works are on public showing for the first time. To May 17, Richard Newton (1777 to 1798): The Young Caricaturist, The Whitworth Art Gallery, The University of Manchester, Oxford Road, Manchester M15 6ER (0161 275 7450).

Realised ... that the majority of the population don't visit art galleries. Or so is the supposition of the Fact Of Life exhibition, which aims to bring the audience into the artistic process. Swedish artist Elin Wikstom has tried to do this this by sleeping in a supermarket for three days, Jeremy Dellar hosts art events in Stringfellows Night Club in London, and Will Bradley gives viewers the choice of whether they are more comfortable viewing in an art gallery or a community centre. To April 19, 3 Month Gallery, 13 Wolstenholme Square, Liverpool.
