Rogue Artists Studios




For 2015, Rogue is delighted to be taking part in Manifest, an artist-led festival, showcasing the talent of North West contemporary artists in a series of exhibitions and events across Manchester and Salford.
Designed to take advantage of the increased creative and media spotlight on the city as a result of the Manchester International Festival, Manifest will give visitors a flavour of some of the artistic activity taking place across the two cities all year round.
Rogue will be holding an additional Open Studios event over the weekend of July 10th – 12th. The opening party will be on Friday July 10th from 6 till 9pm and the studios will be open to the public from 12 – 5pm on Saturday July 11th and Sunday July 12th.

The Grotto Project
1-12th July 2015
Town Square, Sale, Cheshire, M33 7WZ
Open Mon-Sat: 9-5.30; Sun: 10-4
Lucy Harvey has been working with members of the public to gather artefacts and narratives from Sale's past to develop a new site specific installation as part of this year's Sale Arts Trail. The Grotto draws inspiration from the artifice of museum dioramas, vanitas paintings and archaeology to create an intimate retelling of Sale's social history through this collection.
The Grotto installation launches on Wednesday 1st July at 5pm in Sale Square Shopping Centre and remains in Town Square as part of this year's Sale Arts Trail, 11 -12th July. The Trail features 54 artists and makers from Trafford and beyond at a range of diverse venues across Sale from cafes to canal boats, gallery spaces to garden studios. Pick up a map from cafes and arts venues around Sale or check the website to plan your visit: www.saleartstrail.com
The Grotto Project is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England; through kind support from Sale Locality Partnership's Make Sale Smile programme and Sale Arts Trail 2015.



Folds in Time: Artists’ responses to the Temporal and the Uncanny
Day conference
Saturday 4th July
The Anna Freud Centre
Convened by Brass Art as part of the Festival of the Unconscious. This conference brings together artists, curators and writers to examine the ways artists harness aspects of the uncanny and the unconscious in their navigation of physical and imagined spaces. Built around artists’ practices which have responded to the repressed, the unthought or the untold, and which employ fractured, dream-like or metamorphic narratives; the conference will mix keynote addresses with artist-in-conversations.
