Exhibition Policy

The Glucksman's artistic mission is to explore all aspects of visual culture and present a range of innovative and intellectually stimulating displays. The exhibitions and displays programme provided by the Glucksman has two core objectives:

Firstly, in conjunction with the gallery’s education programme, to foster scholarship in the gallery environment placing particular emphasis on the unique role of visual media in communicating knowledge. Central to this is the creation of discursive relationships between academic disciplines and art practice. This is reflected in a wide range of exhibitions that span various media and historical periods.

Secondly, to increase awareness and understanding of the University Art Collection. This includes creating displays of the collection throughout the college campus, providing opportunities for the collection to be displayed in the gallery and encouraging a higher regional and national profile for the collection through loans and touring displays.

The Lewis Glucksman Gallery does not accept unsolicited exhibition proposals. You can download the current exhibition policy here.
