A new year at the Link Gallery
October 7, 2011

It’s been a long summer indeed, but now the Link Gallery is back for another year of exhibitions! The layout of the foyer space has changed now that the stairs have been removed, so we now have even more wall space to play with.

I (Elisa Artesero) will continue to be the curator of the gallery; however I am looking for a small team of volunteers from the Interactive Arts course (particularly our new first years) with an interest in curating who would like to help with the running of the gallery this year. I will post more information a little later, but if any students from the course would like to get in touch with an expression of interest please email

The gallery is also now open for submissions to artists from any degree. Along with the more traditional mediums of work, I am keen to open up the space for more unusual proposals; be it for film, events, theatre, fashion or music to ensure another eclectic year of exhibitions. Do not worry if this is your first exhibition, I will work with you, all I ask is for a certain level of ambition for the use of the space.

So, please email me at for a proposal form.

Re-create Environmental Exhibiton
February 28, 2011

This week The Link Gallery is delighted to be exhibiting work made by children at North Hulme Adventure Playground and Webster Primary School in Moss Side, with guidance from art students at MMU in the Re-create exhibition.

The work relates Manchester to the plight of climate change and the effects the city has on the wider world. This is being shown as an educational tool to visitors and as a way of raising environmental awareness with everyone involved.

These pieces of art range from pinhole photographs, paintings, drawings and backgrounds, to hangings and free standing sculptures, and consists of zones relating to different aspects of climate change.

The media used is mainly from unrecycable materials.

Here’s a look at this colourful exhibition:
