Have you discovered The Parkside Gallery?
The Parkside Gallery is a leading art and design exhibition space within the Parkside Building, with an emphasis on, but not confined to, design-led practice.
Visitors can expect to see a diverse range of shows throughout the academic year, culminating in the University’s very own Art, Design and Media graduate shows in the summer. The space is an integral part of the Faculty of Art, Design and Media’s teaching and learning environment, but is also an ideal space for the public to visit and be inspired. There is also an adjacent coffee shop and seating area for refreshments.
Since opening in 2013, the Parkside Gallery has played host to the work of Ian Emes – who created animated films for Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon, Day and Hille – an exploration of the evolution of the polypropylene chair, and The Metabolic Landscape – an internationally significant photographic exploration of issues concerning renewable energy.
The Parkside Gallery is also one of several stops alongside other prestigious Birmingham galleries on the biannual Art Bus trail.
