Title Northern England Meets South Asia In New Collaboration Media name/outlet Harper's Bazaar Arabia Country/Territory United Kingdom Date 8/02/17 Description “Essentially, it’s about mainstreaming South Asian art. So that it becomes part of what we as museums do” said Nick Merriman, Director of The Manchester Museum and lead spokesman for NNS, in an interview with Bazaar Art.
“We wanted to show how exciting the South Asian art scene is. It’s a combination of the dynamism of the emerging biennale scene, with Lahore, Karachi, Colombo Dhaka and Kochi, and the work of some really interesting commercial galleries and not for profit spaces” said Merriman, “We thought we had an opportunity to help on an international level, bring some of these artists to the attention of a UK audience.”
