About us

Bonington Gallery is an exhibition space and curatorial entity situated within the Bonington building at Nottingham Trent University.  The gallery delivers a programme of exhibitions, initiatives and events that aim to solidify its position within the city as a leading exponent of innovative exhibition practice.

By working with practitioners and institutions from across Europe and beyond, the gallery seeks to position itself within a national and international context whilst engaging the immediate communities within the University and the city of Nottingham.

Through a combination of interdisciplinary exhibitions, collaborative projects, screenings and live events, the gallery reflects the wide-ranging learning resource that it is situated within and make a vital and innovative contribution to the wider discourses of art, design and visual culture.

Situated on the University’s City Campus, our gallery is a short walk from Nottingham city centre. Due to our central location we don’t have visitor parking available, but public transport will bring you almost to our door. Take a look at the Nottingham Art Map – We’re number 2.

Travelling by tram

Visitors traveling on the tram are advised to get off at the Nottingham Trent University stop on Goldsmith Street.
