We are undergoing a £3.8 million redevelopment. When the gallery re-opens in autumn 2017, it will be a vibrant and modern exhibition space bringing about a new era for art and learning in the city.
Gallery improvements will include:
- conserving the architectural and historical elements of the building whilst modernising the gallery to allow for flexible exhibition facilities;
- a dedicated multi - purpose learning space;
- improved lighting;
- a new picture store;
- conservation and reinterpretation of Kurt Schwitters’ iconic Merz Barn Wall.
