Gallery guide – CORNERHOUSE

What’s on chez corner.

70 Oxford Road
Free entry to all exhibitions. Cinema tickets, sadly, not free.
Opening times: Galleries closed Monday, open every other day from 12.
Box office open Monday-Sunday 12-8.

A ‘creative hub’ to meet all your artistic needs. And that’s just the café. Or maybe the bar. Both of which this hub has. This many-storied corner dwelling is indeed a tower of artistic delectables to sink your teeth into. Its got film, art, books, talks, and, food. Noteworthy are upcoming exhibitions from Daksha Patel and Rashid Rana (first major solo exhibition in the UK, in case you’re counting), both featuring as part of the Asia Triennial Manchester 11. If you’re into education the Introduction to Contemporary Visual Arts: Modernism looks set to storm it. Look out also for the Matinee Classics from the film department, in particular, the forthcoming Terence Malick resurrections. Your creative consuming needs need look no further than this home on the corner.
