Barcelona designers and illustrators are heading to Manchester in March for the second edition of graphics event BCNMCR.
Eleven studios – Alex Trochut, Brosmind, Solo, Toormix, Laura Meseguer, Atipus, Clase, BCN, Two Points, Folch Studio, Forma & Co and Berto Martinez – will showcase work in a free exhibition at Northern Quarter venue Twenty Twenty Two (formerly 2022NQ), which opens on March 27 until April 23. Designers will also be giving talks on March 28 at St Peter’s Church in Ancoats.
BCNMCR is sponsored by Shillington College and organised by designer Dave Sedgwick, who launched the event after visiting Barcelona several times and spotting parallels between the two cities. “Both are cosmopolitan with a creative and flourishing design community and distinctive identity,” he says.
