TheGallery showcases work by contemporary artists and designers from around the world, including collections on loan from major galleries and museums.
By delivering an exciting portfolio of exhibitions, events, and projects within the university, we seek to enhance the cultural capital of students, staff and alumni whilst also providing a public platform for the arts within the sub-region. Our portfolio includes artwork on long term loan from the Arts Council Collection and private collections in addition to managing AUB’s own art collection.
Running alongside TheGallery’s main exhibition programme is our Off-Site Arts Programme at Westbeach. We also run a number of artist talks, panel discussions and other events to support the exhibition programme.
