At the Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art you will find the work of emerging and established artists at critical points in their careers, and will discover key works of art of our time.

The whole family can take part in a vast programme of talks, tours, education activities, family workshops and artists' residencies in the Education Room and the Drawing Room. You are also given the opportunity to engage with the visual arts in an imaginative and inspiring way.

Since opening in 1995 the gallery has provided young artists with their first commissions and publications, including Sam Taylor-Wood in 1996, Adam Chodzko in 1999 and AK Dolven in 2001.

The gallery has initiated international touring exhibitions, including 'Nothing', which was also presented in Malmo, Sweden and Vilnius, Lithuania. Five or six major exhibitions are presented each year.
