About the fair

Now in its 15th year, The Manchester Contemporary returns to Manchester Central from 15-17 November 2024. 

The Manchester Contemporary, a collegiate platform for young galleries, artist-led spaces, charitable organisations and partner institutions it provides a critically engaged environment for artistic exploration and development.

“In some ways the fair has always been about ‘keeping it real’,” he says. “Perhaps the Manchester or Northern attitude toward culture is about demystifying art through inclusivity and openness. Our sculpture court is one way we express this."

I am really impressed with how Manchester’s art scene has developed in recent years and The Manchester Contemporary has been integral to this. There is no shortage of potential art buyers in the region, and the fair is vital to inspire and develop a significant audience of collectors.
