Gallery II

Whilst there is no formal academic department devoted to the Arts, the University fully supports and invests in its arts on campus programme, which includes theatre, music and visual arts. Gallery II extends beyond the boundaries of the arts venue into public spaces and places and plays a key role in the cultural life of the campus and the city, through its exhibitions, events, partnership projects and artist residencies. We work to create opportunities for artists to make new work and seek to create innovative and flexible ways in which they can interact with the institution, its stakeholders and the wider world. We seek to develop a process-based relationship between the artist, curator and our broad and diverse audiences. Our unique position within the University aids us in creating a dialogue between a range of contemporary art practices, providing a platform for debate, and works to foster engaged explorations into urgent social, political and cultural questions.

There is a changing exhibition programme of contemporary work in  GalleryII, Chesham building. We also have permanent exhibitions of work from they University's collection, including paintings by Matt Lamb and David Wright in the Norcroft Centre and Atrium.

In light of its academic placing, the visual arts policy of Gallery II is committed to promoting excellence, research and education and aims to reflect the University and the City's diverse communities, by programming work that has relevance to the campus, the district and our global links and which explores the unique contribution that the visual arts can make to our understanding of contemporary life.
