One of the largest and most prestigious art fairs in the UK, Aviva Investors Manchester Art Fair returned to the city this week, alongside sister event, The Manchester Contemporary.

Attracting over 8,000 buyers from across Europe and the UK, this year saw the event’s strongest line up to date with works by world famous artists including Andy Warhol, Banksy, Damien Hirst, Heather Phillipson, Juno Calypso and the Connor Brothers available to buy alongside pieces from the best regional talent.

We were delighted to work with organisers in further raising the profile of the event with a far reaching communications campaign that shone a light on the artists, art work and event itself.  National highlights included The Guardian and Daily Telegraph’s Stella Magazine, underpinned by blanket widespread regional and specialist coverage, including a standout feature on Granada Reports.

This linked double page feature for Living Edge magazine and written by The Strong Agency founder Jules, was an agency favourite and documents the events’ incredible 12 year journey.
