While the gallery is closed, why not make an exhibition at home?

As we start this new year in lockdown, we invite you to make an exhibition, artwork or performance at home or for your neighbourhood.

While school is closed, why not hold an exhibition at home?

Your exhibition could be huge or very small, it could happen under your bed, in the garden, in the bath or take over an entire room of your house.

Please send videos or photos of your exhibition to and we will share them online!

Exhibitions happen in lots of different ways so we’ve invited some artist experts to help you get started, give you some ideas and to warn you about exhibition disasters!
