Castlefield Gallery, 2 Hewitt Street, Manchester, M15 4GB – Visit Now
Established by artists in 1984, Castlefield Gallery is the first public contemporary visual art gallery to have opened in Manchester and has since become an integral part of the North of England’s cultural fabric.
“Castlefield Gallery is the centre to the periphery, which in my thinking is the best position to work from and where I want to be. The Gallery oozes with explorers and pioneers, and understands that the currency of a scene is its ability to import and export culture, not sit stagnant in its own melting pot.”
– Ryan Gander OBE,Artist Patron.
The gallery delivers a public programme of exhibitions, projects and events from its main gallery in central Manchester, as well as also running New Art Spaces – pop-up art and production spaces located across Greater Manchester – and commissioning, curating and producing off-site public art.
Over the last three decades Castlefield Gallery ‘alumni’ have included several Turner Prize winning artists and nominees.
