It’s really great to have an exhibition which is so interactive within the university. With many exhibitions now being so sterile and inhumane, with a strict ‘do not touch’ policy in place, it is refreshing to see such a fun and engaging show. Being a student at NTU and also an invigilator in the Gallery, I think it is great to have a show which reflects the atmosphere of the School of Art and Design.

With such a buzzy and creative feel throughout the building, it is inspiring for the public to be able to get a feel for this atmosphere through an exhibition of this type. With previous exhibitions such as Made in Wood doing a similar job, I think we should have more user-centred and interactive  shows taking place here.

Currently while I write this, there is the sound of laughter from all areas of the Gallery. Play is something we rarely take part in now within our busy, modern lifestyles – it’s important that we engage in these creative and inspiring ideas in order to allow our brains to wander (and have a rest).

This exhibition is just fabulous, you’d be silly not to come and have a go!

See you soon

Visiting us safely 12 August 2021

We are delighted to be launching our 2021/22 season with a solo exhibition spanning 50 years of work by Andrew Logan, one of Britain’s most iconic artists.

We have put several measures in place to make your visit safe. They are constantly under review, subject to change and may vary slightly depending on Government guidance. Please check back to this page prior to planning your visit.

– Please do not visit the gallery if you have COVID-19 symptoms, are self-isolating, or have been in contact with someone who has coronavirus. Follow the NHS coronavirus guidelines.

– We recommend that you download the NHS COVID-19 app in advance of your visit and check in via the QR code when you arrive.

– Entry to the gallery is via the main entrance of the Bonington Building and floor markers will assist with social distancing. Please ‘check-in’ to the main building on arrival via the NHS app, and sanitise your hands.

– We recommend that face masks or coverings are worn upon entrance to the building and gallery. There are some free masks available within the building if you forget.

– 2m social distancing is advised inside the gallery, as it is throughout the building and campus. Please follow signage and wayfinding measures to adhere to best routes throughout the building and gallery.

Contact areas in the gallery, such as doors and handrails, will be subject to cleaning throughout the day. An enhanced cleaning regime is in place across all University buildings.
Clear signage at the gallery entrance will outline the key measures we are adhering too. Please refer to these for guidance. A gallery assistant will also be on hand to help.

We have been awarded a certificate for Visit England’s ‘We’re Good to Go’ scheme.
