The Manchester Contemporary 2014, 26 - 28 September 2014

Critically Engaged Contemporary Art

The Manchester Contemporary is an invitational art fair that gives a platform to emerging galleries and their artists, using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.

Now established as a regular feature in the Manchester calendar, it is returning for the fifth consecutive year, with a new home at Old Granada Studios.

The only gathering of high–calibre, world-class contemporary art galleries outside London, The Manchester Contemporary brings together art lovers and buyers with the best of critically engaged contemporary art from regular exhibitors and new additions as well as offering guided tours and visitor programmes.
