Permanent Collection

We do not have a permenant collection, but rather an exciting and innovative programme of changing contemporary art exhibitions.


Exhibitions

An exhibition of contemporary artwork by Access Approved Art: a collaborative group of Fine Artists from the University of Bolton.
Through their own endeavours, this first public exhibition of collective artworks has been funded, managed and promoted. It aims to initiate an exciting dialogue on a range of themes investigated through multi-disciplinary media and processes. Traditional approaches of painting, drawing, sculpture and printmaking combine with an exploration of other artistic media such as film, digital photography and installation.
The second year Practice and Presentation module of the BA Fine Arts (Hons) degree culminates in this exciting exhibition. This has been designed to develop practical skills as well as those of personal and professional development; we see the pursuit of artistic ambitions and careers beyond the academic.
Subsequently, during the past eight months and with the invaluable support of their tutors, the group have established themselves as a well organised, resourceful and creative collective, focused on the realisation of this exhibition. In December, Access Approved Art saw their artwork go under the hammer in the local community, raising significant funds at a public auction hosted by charity auctioneer Martin Henfield,- former presenter of the BBC’s North West Tonight.
Access Approved Art welcomes you to Moot Point.

Previous Exhibitions

CUBE is proud to collaborate with the Manchester Society of Architects to bring you their annual exhibition and Design Awards in 2012.
The MSA exhibition is a showcase for the work of the architectural profession in the Greater Manchester region. The Design awards, held annually since 1995, are presented for buildings that have made a particularly positive contribution to the local environment and are judged, from the exhibited projects, by a jury consisting of architects and non-architects. In previous years, this forum has attracted many high quality submissions which showcase the talent of architects in the area, many of whom have also won both regional and national RIBA awards.
The aims of the competition are:
• To promote the value of architectural design
• To raise the profile of architects and demonstrate the benefits of good design
• To demonstrate the design skills of the architect
This year, the MSA continues the success of the 2011 exhibition, bringing the 2012 awards to CUBE with a fully curated exhibition being featured in the spring programme of events. The 2011 awards exhibition attracted unprecedented interest from practitioners and the public alike and we hope this will continue in 2011.

Infectious.
Not nasty like a cough or a sneeze.
So don’t worry, no quarantine necessary.
But catching all the same.
We want our ideas to get into your blood and under your skin.
We want them to alter what they touch and leave a mark.
We want them to resonate and spread through the crowd like a rumour.
We’ve all got it, you see.
And we want you to come down with it too.
