About the Manchester Contemporary
The Manchester Contemporary, launched in 2009, is an invitational art fair that provides a platform to emerging galleries and their artists. Publicly funded by the National Lottery through Arts Council England, it is 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.
CuratorSpace is an online platform connecting artists with curators and arts organisations. It provides a series of tools that allow curators to easily and smoothly manage their relationship with artists, giving them more time to plan events and make great things happen in the arts sector.
CuratorSpace is also a cultural partner of the Manchester Contemporary, and will be attending the curator programme.
