The Hatton Gallery is closed

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.

You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
