With 120 curated exhibitors to choose from, the programme at Manchester Art Fair and The Manchester Contemporary can be a little daunting. It is, after all, one of the largest and most prestigious art fairs in the UK. So although we’d fully recommend wandering the stands at your leisure – and particularly talking to the artists exhibiting independently, who are representing their own work and can therefore give unparalleled insight into their practice – it can be hard to know where to start, or what not to miss. Which is why we’ve put together this list of five cool buys at Manchester Art Fair and Manchester Contemporary. It was a monumental task to choose from so much talent, but we managed it in the end. Don’t say we’re not good to you.
Fri 11 Oct - Sun 13 Oct, Manchester Central, Windmill Street, Manchester M2 3GX, Tel: 0161 834 2700, £12 (Friday preview tickets), £5 (Sat & Sun general entry)
