Cummins coming, and you can go too

Buy Art Fair: two people can win a copy of Kevin Cummin’s new book about Manchester and five people can win preview tickets for Buy Art Fair this Thursday

Cummins coming, and you can go too

We’ve got five tickets for you to join the big party in town this Thursday. And two great books to give away as well.

Booze, live music, food and lots of arty types will be lubricating and edifying Urbis as Buy Art Fair arrives in Manchester to brighten the eyes of the city’s art buyers. This looks set to be Manchester’s see and be seen art event for 2009.

The tickets are a rare gateway to combine the best in contemporary British art with a fat slice of good old fashioned schmoozing. Amongst work for sale from 380 artists from 80 galleries there’s a whole musical theme with pieces from the likes of John Squire, Edwyn Collins, Ronnie Wood, Ben Kelly and Kevin Cummins.

Speaking of Cummins, we’ve also got two of the latter’s stunning book about this city to give away.

The renowned rock’n’roll photographer has a new volume called Manchester: Looking for the light through the pouring rain. The book looks at the city, its bands, its fashions and its attitude and explores how these factors have shaped popular culture in the city. In short it’s a beautiful tribute to what makes Manchester tick.

Cummins himself will be at Buy Art Fair on Friday 25 September from 1-2pm and 6-7pm signing copies of the book.
