Andrew Omoding‘s Man Climbing Ladder, a large scale sculptural piece built with ‘buried treasure’ salvaged from ordinary places has been chosen for The Manchester Contemporary exhibition amongst seven other artists’ work.
Following on from a successful exhibition last year, Venture Arts returns to The Manchester Contemporary from Friday 27 October until Sunday 29 October at the Manchester Convention Centre.
This year the space – run in partnership with Castlefield Gallery – has been curated collaboratively between two young and emerging curators, James Desser (Venture Arts) and Tom Emery (Castlefield Gallery Associate) and features significant new art work from digital photography and illustration to ceramics and sculpture from found objects.
“It is extremely important that diverse artists are represented at high profile contemporary arts events like The Manchester Contemporary. (…) This year we wanted to take the opportunity to showcase artwork by learning disabled artists from across the UK to show the breadth and diversity of talent within our field. I am delighted that the show is being co-curated by one of our artists too; it’s that collaboration between people that is so important to us’.”
Amanda Sutton, Director at Venture Arts
