Gallery 2

Gallery 2 acts as a laboratory where artists, designers and makers can experiment, by undertaking research and developing their ideas. It offers visual artists the chance to extend their practice by testing out new ideas and presenting them in public for the first time.

Gallery 2 provides an up-to-the-minute profile of emerging developments in the visual arts. It showcases the visual artists of tomorrow, who frequently produce work either in, or for, the space itself.
