Corridor 8 Magazine

We were surprised to find ourselves included in a new publication, Corridor 8, this month included amongst artists such as Freee Collective and Superflex.

We're in the Manchester cluster in the Magnetic North map of artist led groups designed by dust and Laura Mansfield. It's the centrefold, on pages 31 and 32 and the magazine costs £10.99. We bought it at the Cornerhouse, but you could buy it from Amazon if you fancy it.

The group returns with Exam, the brainchild of Joe Richardson and Jai Redman, developed with local community groups. What is it? Well, your guess is as good as ours, but frankly we’re terrified by the brief: ‘One thing is certain,’ it warns, ‘you will be tested’."
