Family-owned property company Bruntwood has revealed plans for a digital art space, within a new collaborative workspace building called ‘neo’, due to open in Manchester city centre in 2016.
A permanent, large-scale digital screen system on the ground floor will display new media artworks, and will have a regularly changing exhibition, with an open call for digital artists to submit their work. The screens will also showcase Bruntwood-supported projects, including The Bruntwood Prize For Playwriting in partnership with the Royal Exchange Theatre, and Manchester International Festival (MIF), plus work from the Manchester School of Art and independent artists from across the UK.
Colin Sinclair, Director of Workplace Development at Bruntwood, said: “neo has been designed with community and collaboration at its heart, so it’s the perfect place for a dedicated digital art space. In the same way we’re inviting forward-thinking, creatively-minded businesses to occupy the workspace, we want both emerging and established artists to contribute to the digital installation, bringing work and art under one roof.”
Digital artists who may wish to feature their work within the space are encouraged to email their details to firstname.lastname@example.org
