Win stunning city print worth £750

Manchester Confidential and Manchester Museums’ Consortium is giving away one of the most original and jaw-dropping city prints of recent years

Published on February 23rd 2009.


Win stunning city print worth £750

Andrew Brooks ‘Reality Hack’ exhibition at Urbis has been a stunning success with the photographer’s dramatic visualisations of the city’s secret spaces (click here)

One that has really caught the eye and got tongues wagging is ‘Angelic View’, taken from high on the Town Hall tower and looking south to Beetham Tower. This is Manchester made into Gotham City: it’s stunning. And you can win it large at, 60cm by 80cm, worth 750 English.

So what’s it all about?

Manchester Museums’ Consortium has launched a pavement ‘exhibition’ that gives passers-by an insight into the city’s past and present. Around twenty pavement plaques have been laid across the city; each one revealing a hidden fact that links Manchester’s past to its cultural present.

Guests at the Radisson Edwardian Hotel, for example, will find a plaque that alludes to the birth of the Suffragettes at the site, and are then encouraged to link that with the current exhibition at The Whitworth Art Gallery. Another plaque at the Town Hall refers to the story of Great Abel, the hour bell in the clock tower, and links it to the Andrew Brooks photography exhibition at Urbis providing our wonderful prize worth £750.

All of the pavement plaques signpost curious visitors to manchestermuseumsandgalleries, where people can find out how the museums and galleries are rediscovering their radical roots and proving that the city’s pioneering spirit is still alive and kicking.

Over the next two years eight Manchester museums and galleries are staging 10 major new exhibitions, and supporting and promoting dozens more.
