The Manchester Contemporary returns to Spinningfields

Corridor8 welcomes back the most important fair of critically engaged visual art outside of London. The Manchester Contemporary takes place 27-29 September at Leftbank, Spinningfields.

This year over 20 galleries and project spaces from around Britain and the North of England are taking part. You can see examples of some of the work brought by each gallery on The Manchester Contemporary website

Corridor8 won’t be appearing officially. We are taking a year off while we work on the new phase of our journal. After three editions that have seen our take on contemporary visual art in the North of England, Issue #4 will be the start of an entirely new development, still ‘North’ and still ‘international’, but in a surprising way!

Back Issues — We will be at the Fair in person, and back issues of the journal  – including the deluxe limited edition bound set of Issue #3 –will be available for view at the Contemporary Art Society stand and where orders can be taken.

Free Preview Tickets — We are delighted to have 25 pairs of tickets to the special Preview evening, Thursday 26 September, to give away. (See below).

Guided Tours — There will be free guided tours by leading curators who will identify and interpret some of the more challenging work at the fair. The tours take place:

Friday 27 September 6pm
Saturday 28 September 12pm and 3pm
Sunday 29 September 12pm and 2:30pm

The tours start at the hospitality area next to the café in the Buy Art Fair marquee and include a complimentary glass of wine. No need to book a place in advance, simply turn up.

Tickets are free at
