Directors and Gallery Circle

Creativity, innovation and new ideas are at the heart of contemporary art.

We believe today’s art is uniquely placed to challenge and inspire by opening new avenues of thought. Through our innovative public and educational programmes we are demonstrating the transformative effect art can have by raising aspirations and changing lives.

Our ambitious artistic programme - described by The Guardian as “the UK’s most inspiring” - relies on the generosity of our benefactors. Your support will help us continue to present the works of many of the world’s leading and emerging artists. Our programme to date has included David Hockney and Frances Stark, Alberto Giacometti and Marc Camille Chaimowicz, Asco, Geoffrey Farmer, Marvin Gaye Chetwynd, Simon Starling, Frances Upritchard, Glenn Ligon and Pablo Bronstein in an acclaimed collaboration with Chatsworth, as well as several highly acclaimed group exhibitions.

We will thank you for your support in our seasonal printed brochures, on our website and in our building. We will also keep you up to date on some of the exciting projects we are working on, and invite you to special events throughout the year.
