About

Contemporary Forward represents an exciting new chapter in Touchstones Rochdale Art Gallery’s contemporary art programme. At its core is a rolling series of exhibitions, commissions and off-site projects with nine artists and a private collector over the coming years. Each has been carefully selected to resonate with the key strands in our exhibitions policy – visit the Contemporary Forward pages for more details about each of the projects.

In addition to this specific programme of activity we also continue to stage a range of other, highly ambitious contemporary exhibitions in our galleries – visit the Contemporary Programme pages for more details about these exhibitions.

Touchstones Rochdale Art Gallery is part of a larger facility that includes a museum, archive centre, education space, café and shop managed by Rochdale Boroughwide Cultural Trust (Link4Life). For more details about our wider activities including the collections we hold visit Link4Life.

Contemporary Forward is supported by funding from Arts Council England and the Friends of Rochdale Art Gallery amongst others. For the full list visit Funders.
