Manchester’s artist-focused art fair returns this weekend and, alongside an emphasis on artist collectives, organisers say that for the first time in the fair’s history the majority of the galleries and collectives taking part are led by women. We preview the fair and take a look at some of the other artist-led events taking place around Manchester this weekend.
The Manchester Contemporary - a-n The Artists Information Company
UK’s largest art fair outside London returns for its 10th edition with bumper exhibition and an extended programme of talks and events.
The exhibition and project space in Salford, Greater Manchester, will close before the end of the year, with directors Paulette Terry Brien and Laurence Lane also leaving their roles as curatorial coordinators of The Manchester Contemporary festival.
Art world professionals will be sharing their insights on what makes a city an art market centre at the Fair Cities panel discussion, part of The Manchester Contemporary art fair.
