"The fair continues to be a genuine counterweight to London – and a real part of the art world ecology outside the capital."


Manchester Art Fair

Manchester Art Fair 2019 is one of the UK's most ambitious art fairs welcoming over 68,000 visitors and selling over £4.5m worth of art since it's launch in 2008. Our 120 exhibitors are a curated selection of established galleries, emerging galleries and artist-led spaces to appeal to our audience of over 8,000 art collectors and corporate art buyers based in Manchester, Cheshire, and the North

Over the past decade, it has developed into two distinctive fairs, the first, Manchester Art Fair, providing a platform for commercial galleries and individual artists and the second, The Manchester Contemporary, a platform for emerging and early career galleries and artist-led spaces producing critically engaged work.
