About the exhibition space

A large exhibition gallery adjacent to the Art Collection enables us to provide a programme of loan exhibitions. The University upgraded this to the highest Government Indemnity standards for 2017 when Hull became UK City of Culture and we saw over 55,000 visitors to the galleries. We were able to launch 2017 with a remarkable exhibition of drawings from the British Museum, including works by Leonardo and Michelangelo.  We have also shown exhibitions in partnership with the National Portrait Gallery, Government Art Collection, and the Science Museums Group, and we continue to mount an exciting programme of exhibitions.
