Win a pair of tickets to the exclusive preview evening of Aviva Investors Manchester Art Fair.
One of the UK’s most ambitious art fairs, Aviva Investors Manchester Art Fair, returns to Manchester Central on October 11-13 with its strongest and most diverse range of work to date. Selling modern and contemporary paintings, sculpture, photography and editioned prints from a wide selection of UK and international galleries and artists, the event is a key date in the city’s diary, attracting visitors from across Europe and beyond.
Over the past 12 years, Aviva Investors Manchester Art Fair has hosted a charity auction of exclusive Damian Hirst doodles, hosted live works from artists such as Pure Evil, staged an exclusive interview with world-famous collector Frank Cohen and delivered record art sales including works by Tracy Emin and Grayson Perry.
This year, art buyers can expect to enjoy the work of Banksy, Yoko Ono, Dan Hillier, Peter Blake and Pure Evil, as well as Northern-based artists such as Ian Rayer Smith, Katie Edwards and James Roper. All are available to buy at the event.
Taking place alongside Manchester Art Fair, The Manchester Contemporary focuses on critically engaged art, using bold curatorial vision to select the most exciting international and UK galleries to participate. Emerging artistic talent from the regions sits alongside international presentations. This event continues to be curated by Nat Pitt from Division of Labour and supported using public funding by Arts Council England. A programme of engaging events, workshops, children’s activities and an impressive café adds to the event’s appeal.
