Ny space


Ny space is a new artist led residency and exhibition space in the heart of Manchester City Centre. Ny is aimed at giving an international context to the work of mid-career artists based in Manchester. The Ny space is highly accessible with views from street level with wrap around glass windows and was chosen due to its ability to showcase contemporary art in an ideal setting through natural lighting and design. This space has been achieved through a collaboration with East Street Arts, rednile and new partners Bruntwood.

To achieve our aims we are working with a number of curators in Manchester to select artists whose practice displays the greatest potential for development at an international level. We aim for residencies and exhibitions to be covered with a grant to allow time for the development of new ambitious artworks. Residencies will be supported with a programme of critical engagement and texts involving Manchester galleries and curators.

Ny ambitions are to reach an international audience, to establish long term links of collaboration and to celebrate Manchester as an international base for art. The first Ny project will involve inviting curators based outside of the UK to curate an exhibition and give formal studio visits to the artists in residence.
