Anybody who has visited The Quays knows it is an iconic location of both historical significance and technological innovation. This stunning festival, Future City, reflects that perfectly, with artworks that combine humour, current affairs and awareness of place or refer back to Manchester’s history.

Audiences are invited to come and enjoy each of these artworks for free over four weekends. A series of artists’ talks will run alongside the festival hosted by Future City’s partners and co-curators, the University of Salford.

An array of reflective discs protrude above floor level, Vanishing Boundaries by Liz West is a striking light installation.

The only indoor piece in the Future City series, Vanishing Boundaries will brighten up the foyer of the studios at MediaCityUK for six weeks. The installation emits intense bursts of light from underneath the discs; the floor is transformed into a field of colour, connected by the trailing electrical wires.
