Curated by Alex Farquharson and Andrea Schlieker

28 January - 2 April 2006

The biggest and most ambitious survey of contemporary art you will see this year is coming to Manchester in the British Art Show 6, as part of its UK tour. Taking place across the whole of the city including Urbis, Castlefield Gallery, Chinese Arts Centre, Cornerhouse, International 3, Manchester Art Gallery and The Whitworth Art Gallery.

Featured at Urbis is a selection of artists who explore the city and its built environment. Highlights will include newly commissioned, site specific painting by Toby Paterson, an artist concerned with architecture and how places evolve into looking the way they do. Nathan Coley will also be exhibiting a new work ‘Jerusalem Syndrome’, a video installation which investigates the rare religious psychosis affecting visitors to the ‘Holy City’ and Matthew Houlding installs fantasy architecture in the form of dream homes and cities constructed from everyday detritus.
