Manifesto

An exhibition of new and recent work by Rogue Studios artists

Saturday October 6th and Sunday October 7th

Open 12-5pm

Exhibition continues October 8th – December 21st (weekdays by appointment)

Curated by Rogue in association with Manifest Arts

Rogue Studios opens to the public this October, with a special launch event at its new home in the former Varna Street school buildings in Openshaw. Rogue, which is Manchester’s biggest artists’ studios provider, is home to more than 80 artists and collectives, and its Project Space has been a showcase for some of the most exciting contemporary art in the region.

Established in 1995, Rogue moved out of Manchester city centre last August, when its previous building Crusader Mill was bought by Capital & Centric for conversion into flats. Manchester City Council intervened to save the Studios, and with the support of Capital & Centric and the Arts Council, a new home was found at the Grade 2 listed former school buildings at Varna Street in Openshaw.

Taking place over the weekend of October 5th-7th, the event features Manifesto the inaugural exhibition of the new Rogue Project Space in the ground floor main school hall. Manifesto features new and recent work by current Rogue studio holders and is curated by Rogue in association with Manifest Arts.
