Contemporary Art Manchester (CAM) presents its inaugural project Trade City; a dynamic, international exhibition in Will Alsop's iconic CHIPS building, supported by Arts Council England and Urban Splash, and in conjunction with Manchester International Festival 2009. Introducing a number of Manchester and UK premieres and new commissions, Trade City has generated new forms of exchange across the city's art scene.
Contemporary Art Manchester is a new, not-for-profit consortium of visual arts organisations, representing the breadth of the current contemporary arts infrastructure in Manchester. In bringing together the art production of thirteen diverse organisations, Trade City reflects the trading and exchange that has taken place between the artists and curators partnering in CAM.
Each participating organisation has selected artists to work with that are representative of their curatorial approach or position, alongside exploring multi-faceted interpretations of ‘trade’. As a result, the presented works of twenty-six emergent to established international artists trade off each other in one space, creating aesthetic and spatial interplays, whilst addressing ideas of cultural, economic, geographical and political exchange.
Trade City is organised by Contemporary Art Manchester (CAM), in association with Manchester International Festival 2009 (MIF 09). Supported by Arts Council England and Urban Splash. Contemporary Art Manchester is supported by Arts Council England.
