70 The Exhibition, a group show curated by Monica Colussi to celebrate HM Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee, has been commissioned to mark the launch of the ABC Buildings in Enterprise City, and will be hosted within ABC Gallery.

ABC Gallery offers a prominent ground floor space within the eponymous 1960s mid-century ABC Buildings, a creative hub in the centre of Manchester. ABC Buildings, operated by All Work & Social, is set to officially launch with a weekend full of events and activities.

The leading workspace and hospitality operator has chosen art curator, Monica Colussi, to showcase a collection of over 30 unique pieces, incorporating sculpture, photography, painting, drawing, video, neon art, mosaics and textiles from a broad spectrum of artists, paying homage to the celebratory occasion and will be the first event of ABC Building’s launch.

70 The Exhibition will open on June 16th 2022, with a private viewing, before opening to the public from June 17th through to July 28th. The opening weekend will take place from June 17th – June 19th to showcase the ABC Buildings as a whole, including its new roof deck and unique glass dome. The terrace space will host food trucks, a vintage flea market, outdoor screenings of a series of classic Manchester films, DJs, live music, a silent 60s disco and a Northern Soul takeover.

The weekend’s events will conclude on 19th June with a wellness and family-friendly scheduled Sunday which includes roof deck morning yoga, juices and breakfast in the dome, All Queens stand-up comedy in Side Street Studio, 60s classic football match and a kids rave in the dome, hosted by renowned Big Fish Little Fish. Side Street Studio, located on the corner of Quay Street and Lower Byrom Street, will be ABC Buildings’ signature bar and creative lifestyle space.
