The Fall of the Artlounge, the Rise of a New Columnist.

Manchester Confidential welcomes our new art columnist, Jason Selby...

Published on March 22nd 2006.


The Fall of the Artlounge, the Rise of a New Columnist.
For those of you who don't already know, sadly The Artlounge gallery in the basement of the Triangle is no more. But hey-ho, every cloud and all that, it frees up some of my time to write a new art column for Manchester Confidential.

For this column in the months to come, in the spirit of creativity, I intend to mix things up a little. Not only will I be reviewing exhibitions held in public galleries, but ones held in privately owned spaces as well.

I want to know what you think about art, what artwork you have in your homes and what you would have if only your purse or wallet could stretch to it. So from time to time I'm going to be interviewing Manchester's more familiar faces and some not so familiar ones and finding out just what they really think about art.

The Artlounge is sadly no more...

Of course there will be an exhibition listing, but what I hope to do is seek out and find Manchester's undiscovered talent and give them some much-deserved exposure.

But for now, right now, what's on everyone's lips and in all the major public galleries in Manchester is 'British Art Show 6', and rightly so. Click here for this month's art column on British Art Show 6.
