CUBE Open, Manchester

Paul Harfleet & Hilary Jack were recently invited to select and curate Cube’s first annual OPEN Competition. The competition was open to any creative; applicants were asked to respond to the theme of the Urban Built Environment. Harfleet and Jack made a selection from 250 submissions, subsequently narrowed down to 14 practitioners who were thought to best convey the contemporary insights and thoughts on the given theme. A selection was subsequently made of two prize winning artists, Robin Maurice and Michael James Jones, Marquette of the Night, shown above, and a residency at CUBE was awarded to Rich White
