Established in 2008, Asia Triennial Manchester (ATM) is the only Asian Triennial outside Asia. Launched in partnership with Castlefield Gallery, Chinese Arts Centre (now CFCCA), Cornerhouse, The International 3, Manchester Art Gallery and Manchester Metropolitan University as a new long-term programme of contemporary arts and crafts by artists from Asia, the UK and the Asian diaspora. ATM14 aims to challenge perceptions about Asia, and recent challenging global events make its theme of Conflict and Compassion a timely one. This Triennial includes artists who live in, work in or address issues surrounding Asia as well as this Triennial’s artistic theme.
