About Bonington Gallery: 50 years of curating and creating contemporary art
Bonington Gallery has been a significant part of the cultural landscape of Nottingham for half a century. Its diverse and ambitious artistic programme has consistently presented the forefront of creative practice and through this has gained a national reputation.
The gallery is situated within the Bonington building, first opened on 14 October 1969 by Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Kent. This labyrinth of a modernist building is nestled in the heart of our City Campus and is home to a wide range of creative courses, providing a suitable context for an artistic programme that profiles a wide range of creative practice.
Hosting an annual series of exhibitions, film nights, workshops and events, the gallery also plays an important role as a resource for students, offering a public gallery experience on the doorstep. The Gallery's independent website includes current and forthcoming exhibitions and events, a blog, and an online archive of past exhibitions.
Bonington Gallery holds a strong position within Nottingham’s art scene. In 2015 the Gallery, together with a steering group made up of Nottingham’s visual art venues, established the Nottingham Art Map – an interactive website and street guide promoting exhibitions and events across many of Nottingham’s galleries and artist led spaces.
The gallery is also part of Curated & Created – NTU’s cultural programme aimed at helping students, staff and the local community get enjoyment, inspiration and intellectual stimulation from all of our exciting cultural and creative activities.
