ThoughtWorks Manchester Office
ThoughtWorks contacted us looking for art for their brand new offices, in City Tower in the center of Manchester. They were interested in an art subscription so they could add a bit of new life into the office every 3 months. Their sister office in London works with our competitors for their office's art subscriptions as well, but they were looking for something slightly more affordable for their office in Manchester. About a month before we installed, I was able to go up to the office and talk with the office manager and get a feel for the office - a young hip, office with a living wall, and start-up vibes. They wanted three works that would be rotated every three months, and they would have a 4th work come from Mustard Seed, a homeless arts charity. They told me that they were looking for local Manchester based artists, so they could support their local community and their charitable missions as a company. I knew just the artist that could work with their brief - Alexander Paul. These three works will be up for three months then, come February, they will be getting three new works from a Manchester based artist. I look forward to enjoying their lovely views from the 26th floor in City Tower, and getting to visit our other clients in the area.
ThoughtWorks has three artworks, rotated every three months for £550 per month.
