So the other week I went around Manchester looking for gallery spaces.
Here’s a few photos of places I found.
Nexus, Northern Quarter
Pros: Free, popular cafe with an artsy crowd and a zine library, dedicated white wall gallery space
Cons: No natural light, small
Kraak, Northern Quarter
Pros: Free, natural light, bar/stage downstairs for opening night
Cons: Entrance in side alley so less accidental footfall
Piccadilly Place, Piccadilly
Pros: Free, very large, readily available white walls in centre of space,
Cons: Cold, no inbuilt artificial light (though there are electric sockets), need to pay for own security on opening night and for art insurance
I have contact details for these three gallery spaces and they are all available over the next several months at various times.
Hopefully we may be able to bring our work south of the border soon!
