The Manchester Contemporary

Manchester's fair for the best in emerging contemporary art

The Manchester Contemporary returned for its 6th year with a record number of galleries as demand to participate in the fair continues to grow. It has remained consistent in reflecting the growth and strength of the best of a UK wide art scene that is constantly evolving. 

Alongside regular galleries from Manchester and London, this year we welcomed nine new exhibitors to the city making it the largest fair to date. This line up demonstrates The Manchester Contemporary's underlying ethos as a fair that exists to provide its audience with opportunities to reconnect with galleries and artists they already know while adding to the excitement by creating opportunities for making new discoveries.

Supported by Arts Council England

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.
