Donors help us continue to grow our collection

We are pleased to welcome a new group of donors who have helped us to acquire works for the collection from the Manchester Contemporary 2018.

A gift to the city from The Manchester Contemporary Art Fund.

The Manchester Contemporary, the only UK invitational art fair for critically engaged contemporary art outside London, today announced artists William Mackrell and Emma Price as the first to benefit from its newly-launched The Manchester Contemporary Art Fund.

Created by a set of local business people passionate about their city and its cultural heritage, The Manchester Contemporary Art Fund seeks to support rising artists, providing them with a platform through which to achieve critical acclaim and greater popularity.

William Mackrell, represented by The RYDER, and Emma Price, represented by Two Queens, were selected from over 150 artists by Fund founders and the curatorial team of Manchester Art Gallery following an exhaustive panel discussion. William’s piece – Aquarius, and Emma’s pieces – Mike I and Mike II, are to be displayed in the gallery.
