Rogue Artists’ Studios, 66-72 Chapeltown Street, Manchester, M1 2WH [map]
Rogue Artists’ Studios is celebrating its 21st anniversary with what will be its last Open Studios at Crusader Mill. A highlight of Manchester’s art calendar, the annual weekend-long event offers members of the public, curators and collectors the opportunity to meet some of Manchester’s most exciting emerging and established artists.
Currently home to 90+ contemporary artists Rogue is the largest artists’ studio community in the UK outside of London. But as Rogue announce a series of projects to mark its 21st anniversary, the artist members are still to secure a new home ahead of December when their lease ends.
Spanning all forms of visual art from painting, sculpture, photography, installation, performance and more, visitors are welcomed to the two-day event when the artists’ throw open their doors.
In addition, Rogue Project Space will present Excuse Me While I Am Changing, an exhibition of new works by artists Matthew Bamber, Linda Hemmersbach, Hannah Leighton-Boyce, and Michelle Shields. Curated by Lucy Harvey, the exhibition presents works which respond to the shifting and liminal spaces which surround Rogue Artists’ Studios.
Rogue Cinema will also present a programme of short artists films and moving image works.
*Unfortunately Rogue Studios is only accessible by several stairwells.
