About

Wolverhampton is delighted to announce the city has been chosen as the first city to host British Art Show 9, taking place in 2021.
 

The British Art Show is the largest touring exhibition of contemporary art in the UK, giving people in cities across the country the opportunity to engage with work by the most exciting artists in Britain.

From 6 March – 30 May 2021 audiences in Wolverhampton will be the first to see the exhibition, which will take place across two main venues:, Wolverhampton Art Gallery and the University of Wolverhampton's School of Art. Following Wolverhampton, the exhibition will tour to Aberdeen (3 July – 3 October 2021), Plymouth (6 November 2021 – 13 March 2022) and Manchester (6 May - 4 September 2022).

The British Art Show is widely recognised as a significant marker of recent developments in contemporary art in Britain, and British Art Show 9 will be no exception. A huge range of works by over 40 artists will be presented, engaging with many of the most urgent issues of our times, including the environmental crisis, identity and belonging, conflict resolution and healing.
