“Since its founding in 1984, Castlefield Gallery (CG) has been one of Northern England’s most active and successful organisations/agencies for developing emerging contemporary artists and practice. Its ambitious curated exhibitions programme responds to national and international trends, promoting artists at key stages of their careers, including subsequent Turner Prize nominees/winners and exhibitors at international festivals. Central to CG’s activities is an artist development programme that has launched major commission-winning artists.
Castlefield Gallery’s vision is for the North to be a place where artists can live and produce work, while presenting their work in national and international contexts. Its mission is to nurture talent, explore cultural trends and deepen the audience’s relationship to contemporary art.
CG runs its curated programme of exhibitions from its city centre public gallery space, as well as hosting regular artist talks, events, and exhibition previews. CG’s curated projects present new art by emerging and established artists, often working with external or independent curators and partners. CG is free to attend and open to all.”
