Progress at The Manchester Contemporary



LAUNCH: Thursday 22 September, 5.30-9pm

I’m pleased to announce that we’re taking (a much downsized) version of June’s Progress exhibition to this year’s Manchester Contemporary. Our booth will include work by Rogue members Jan Chlebik, Hilary Jack, Sam Meech, and Evangelia Spiliopoulou.

Our booth at TMC is part of Rogue’s Arts Council England funded 2016 Place & Production programme which I’m co-ordinating this A/W. The programme of exhibitions and events will be the last in the studios current home, Crusader Mill, following the building’s recent purchase by property developers. The works exhibited at The Manchester Contemporary respond to the transitory state of Rogue and the building which has been its home since 2001.

The Manchester Contemporary is the only critically engaged art fair of it’s kind outside London. 2016 will be the eighth edition and will see a range of UK and international gallery and project spaces at the Old Granada Studios in Manchester. Produced alongside Buy Art Fair, this is the largest art fair outside of London.
