Exhibitions

Usually and throughout the year, especially in Full Term, the Art Rooms host exhibitions, installations and other visual art events. These are organised by invited artists and by Members of College. They range across many facets of art and design and might equally include traditional shows of drawing and painting or innovative expressions of contemporary art and design practices. The Rooms particularly welcome shows of art by King's students or art events and exhibitions curated by King's students.

During the Covid crisis the Art Rooms has promoted PDF and online exhibitions. Look out for more information here or email Nigel Meager to be added to a mailing list to receive information as it is published.

Information about visiting the Art Rooms

Visiting the Art Rooms is suspended during the Covid crisis unless you are a College Member or member of Staff at King's. 

After the Covid situation eases and College is open to visitors again, if you are not a member of the University or King’s College you will need an invitation to visit the Art Rooms to show at the main gate on King’s Parade. Please ask for an invitation by emailing the artist or agent (see email address in the exhibition information). The invitation can be printed or displayed on a mobile phone.

The Art Rooms are at the top of Staircase A.  Please note there is no lift access. If the Art Room main door is closed, please ask at the Porter’s Lodge. Please bear in mind this is not a public gallery or a fully managed exhibition space and the Rooms are used for a variety of activities. For more information please email Dr Nigel Meager.

There are currently no events scheduled – please check back soon.
