Explore our exhibitions
Found Cities, Lost Objects: Women in the City, is a national touring exhibition curated for the Arts Council Collection by Turner Prize-winning artist and cultural activist Lubaina Himid CBE. This exhibition of over 60 works, including some by Bristol-based artists, presents a wide array of modern and contemporary art, including painting, sculpture, photography and film from both the Arts Council Collection and artists’ studios.

Street Life is an exhibition curated by Malcolm Ashman RWA and Stephen Jacobson RWA. Stephen and Malcolm first conceived of this urban-themed exhibition before the pandemic, and felt now was the perfect time to revive it to complement Found Cities Lost Objects in the main galleries. 20 Academicians were invited to display work and the show will include architecture, sculpture, printmaking and painting.
