Rule 5 to promote 10th edition of Buy Art Fair
The single biggest art fair in the UK outside of London, Buy Art Fair presents new and contemporary works from established and diverse artists and galleries to first-time buyers and experienced collectors. In its 10 years an astonishing £3 million worth of pieces have been sold, including works by internationally-renowned artists including Damien Hirst, Tracy Emin and Grayson Perry. This year the event will be staged at award-winning exhibition venue Manchester Central.
Rule 5 is tasked with further raising the profile of the event in its anniversary year and, new for 2017, Buy Art Fair Fringe, with a focus on driving coverage in national and regional consumer media. Activity includes artist and gallery profiles, tactical and creative campaigns, and news generation. Work is already underway.
Speaking on the appointment, Buy Art Fair CEO, Thom Hetherington, said: “Rule 5 has played a significant role in the promotion of Buy Art Fair over the years, helping to establish the event as one of the most celebrated art fairs in the country.
“The team, some of whom we worked in our very first year, continue to be as enthusiastic and committed as ever. It’s great to have them on board in this significant anniversary year.”
Rule 5 Founding Director, Julie Wilson, said: “Over the last 10 years Buy Art Fair has played a significant role in establishing Manchester as one of Europe’s most culturally exciting cities, cultivating a new generation of art buyers. It’s been a genuine pleasure to play a small part in the event’s journey and to have the opportunity to work together on this significant 10th edition.”
Buy Art Fair returns this 27-29 October 2017 and will see over £1m worth of art from over 100 galleries and artists adorn the walls of Manchester Central. For more information visit: www.buyartfair.co.uk
