Just across from the Millennium Gallery, you’ll find the Art Deco home of the city’s dazzling visual art collection.
Our current collection displays introduce approaches to colour and form, identity, portraiture and the human figure, and alternative perspectives on our recognised histories. Across the galleries themes are explored through paintings, sculpture, photography, video, installation and works on paper from the city’s collection, complemented by a number of key loans.
You’ll see work by artists including Avinash Chandra, Tess Jaray, Jacqueline Morreau, Isaac Julien, Grayson Perry, Keith Piper, Bridget Riley and Mark Wallinger and many more, alongside a vibrant programme of regularly changing exhibitions.
In 2021, the Graves Gallery began a five-year programme of redisplay generously supported by the Ampersand Foundation. Each year, 40% of the displays are rehung, allowing visitors to enjoy even more of the city’s collection.
