Organised by EASEL Projects, Manchester Art Fair is one of the UK’s most ambitious art fairs, selling modern & contemporary paintings, sculpture, photography and editioned prints from a selection of UK and international galleries.
Launched in 2008 as Buy Art Fair, Manchester Art Fair had an exciting first 15 years including a charity auction of Damian Hirst doodles, the development of The Manchester Contemporary and its collector programme, limited edition print releases by artists including JJ Adams, Stan Chow and Simon Buckley and live painting by artists such as Kerry Darlington, Pure Evil and akse p19.
In recent years, highlights have included installations from Manchester School of Art, WTF is an NFT? collaboration with KnownOrigin, and exclusive print releases and talks with Ryan Gander, Stanley Chow and Ghislaine Howard.
EASEL Projects' current portfolio includes Manchester Art Fair, The Manchester Contemporary, The Manchester Contemporary Art Fund, Salon Hang, EASEL and EASEL Bespoke. We champion the arts ecology of the North all year round.
