How galleries work: artist-focused galleries – Castlefield Gallery

Past Project 2014

Castlefield Gallery started as an artist-led space. It is now an artist-focused gallery and agency.

In this video gallery director, Kwong Lee discusses:

  • The gallery programme
  • How they discover the artists that they work with
  • How the gallery engages with Manchester’s artist community and the local context

A gallery’s sources of funding and context all bear great influence on their programme. This influences the kind of work they are likely to exhibit. Research a gallery’s programme and understand these factors. It will help establish if they are likely to respond favourably to your approach,

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.
