Aviva Investors Manchester Art Fair 2018

Aviva Investors Manchester Art Fair is the most prestigious art fair in the North. Over 120 galleries and artists will be selling thousands of modern & contemporary paintings, sculpture, photography and editioned prints at a wide range of prices.

Taking place alongside Aviva Investors Manchester Art Fair, The Manchester Contemporary, supported by using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England, takes a uniquely artist-focused approach, inviting the most exciting international and UK galleries to participate.

Manchester Art Fair opens with an exclusive preview evening on Friday 12th October and is open to the public throughout the weekend of 13th-14th at Manchester Central. Tickets are available now at

Launched in 2008 as Buy Art Fair, the event has had an exciting first ten years including a charity auction of Damian Hirst doodles, the development of The Manchester Contemporary and its collector programme, and live painting by artists such as Pure Evil.  Previous highlights include an exclusive interview with world famous collector Frank Cohen, as well as record art sales including works by Tracy Emin and Grayson Perry. Plans for 2018 include the third Masterpiece charity dinner at the Whitworth and the official fringe with affiliated events and initiatives spilling out across the whole city. 2018 will see the fair rebrand as Manchester Art Fair.
