Manchester’s fair for emerging contemporary art
Taking place alongside Buy Art Fair, The Manchester Contemporary is an unrivalled incubator of artistic talent. Using bold curatorial judgement it offers works for sale from the most exciting, critically engaged contemporary artists and galleries, many of whom then embark on the international art fair network.
The Manchester Contemporary celebrates its tenth edition with a move to Manchester Central, the award-winning exhibition centre created from the historic Manchester Central railway station. With increased space and room to grow, the new location in the heart of one of Europe’s most exciting cultural destinations will allow Buy Art Fair and The Manchester Contemporary to drive the North’s art market forward for years to come.

Manchester Central is the perfect venue
to move up to the big league. It is what
the city needs.'
