PROFORMA back in action
PROFORMA is a non-profit art, performance and curatorial platform in Greater Manchester. Founded by creative director Chris Bailkoski, PROFORMA supports artists and curators by commissioning work and providing artist exchange opportunities while offering an essential programme for artists’ development including mentoring and peer-led talks. Their newest venture is LOITER, a one-day live visual art programme highlighting the significance of our own neighbourhood, the Chapel Street area as one of the oldest trade routes connecting Manchester and Salford, and an area seemingly in constant flux. There are two artist commissions available for £1000 plus production budget to produce a piece of work about this special area. Read more here. We’ll be sure to keep you posted about developments.
Meanwhile PROFORMA have launched an online exhibition space called PAVILION where you can see rotating collections of live visual art. Currently showing is the eclectic and brilliant inaugural PROFORMA at The Dancehouse back in 2018, filmed by our own impaTV. Finally, CENSUS is a free, 1 hour mentor, crit and career development session with PROFORMA Director Chris Bailkoski. Open to any artists and curators based in the Greater Manchester region. Last Tuesdays of the month. Read all about it here.
