NORTH is a new initiative which aims to showcase and develop contemporary art in the North of England whilst provoking critical debate on the future artistic production in the region.


In a series of curated ‘pavilions’, exhibitions and events, NORTH will explore the breadth and strength of talent within the region in a festival opening Friday 2 October  and running until Saturday 31 October 2015 across Warrington.

The pavilions for the north of England are curated by institutions and individuals who shape the arts in the North, including the Manchester Pavilion by Bureau, Middlesbrough Pavilion by Platform A, Newcastle Pavilion by Vane, and Birmingham Pavilion curated by IKON gallery.

Focus exibitions will present international artists alongside those from the region in distinct projects - from Joe Scanlan in the USA to Ryan Gander who was born and educated in the North of England.

Delivered in partnership with Warrington Contemporary Art Festival and supported with funding from Arts Council England, NORTH presents a programme of exhibitions and talks in multiple venues across Warrington from more formal spaces in the Pyramid Art Centre to raw ex-retail units and station platforms. Warrington has been chosen as a bridge point between two of the North’s ‘art powerhouses’: Liverpool and Manchester and the half way point between London and Glasgow.

NORTH will be programmed across multiple locations across the north of England, for more information please visit www.northcontemporary.com
