Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art presents changing
exhibitions of new work by artists from the UK and abroad, bringing new art to
new audiences. It offers opportunities to emerging and established artists to
present work at critical points in their careers, and audiences the chance to
see key works of art of our time.
Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art is one of the most flexible gallery spaces in the UK and changes character for each exhibition. Its generous 35x17m space contains a grid of ceiling-mounted screens, which are used to create suites of rooms, sequences of intimate spaces, or a spacious open-plan arena.
The gallery runs a programme of talks, tours, education activities, workshops and artists' residencies in the Education Room, Activity Space and Studio. The gallery team provides a range of different opportunities for people to engage with the visual arts in an imaginative and inspiring way. A selection of gallery publications is available from the Craft Shop on the ground floor.
