Castlefield Gallery: artist-focused galleries

Past Project 2014

Castlefield Gallery began life as an artist led space and is now an artist-focused gallery and agency. In this video its director Kwong Lee discusses the gallery programme, how they discover the artists that they work with and how the gallery engages with the artist community and the local context of Manchester.

A gallery’s sources of funding and context all bear great influence on their programme and consequently the kind of work they are likely to exhibit. Researching and understanding this is how the hopeful exhibitor can establish whether a space is likely to respond favourably to their approaches.

Originally commissioned as part of Gallery Films, interviewing directors from different types of galleries to explore how artists might get exhibitions. Produced by Orlagh Woods and filmed and edited by Best Bits Media Ltd.
