> Art Exchange

Art Exchange is one of the region’s leading galleries of contemporary visual art. We show the work of internationally renowned artists such as William Kentridge Fiona Banner and Jake & Dinos Chapman, while also supporting emerging new talent. Proud of its academic reputation, the gallery plays an important role in the cultural life of both campus and Colchester, drawing a wide local, national, and international audience to its programme of exhibitions and events.

Art Exchange also works closely with students from MA Gallery Studies & Critical Curating, showcasing their exhibitions in the summer term.

Inspired by the gallery’s exhibition programme, our Events offer powerful learning opportunities and a chance to discover more about the arts. Artist’s talks, films and critical texts accompany all our exhibitions. We also run an outreach programme of workshops and talks that take place in schools, colleges and community centres.
