John Hansard Gallery, part of the University of Southampton, is one of the UK’s leading contemporary art galleries. We support, develop and present great art by outstanding artists from across the world and are proud to play a dynamic role in the cultural life of Southampton and the region.

We create extraordinary encounters – connecting people, communities and artists. As a contemporary art gallery in the heart of Southampton, we provide inclusive, collaborative and open spaces for reflection, excitement, challenge and developing potential. Our programme includes exhibitions, commissions, partnerships, learning and research projects that draw on a wide range of perspectives and lived experiences. We are proud to be locally engaged, nationally pioneering and internationally recognised.

John Hansard Gallery is funded by the University of Southampton, its governing body. We are proud to be part of a world-leading University and one of two outstanding arts organisations connected to the University of Southampton, alongside Turner Sims Concert Hall. We are also hugely grateful for the support of Arts Council England, who have funded John Hansard Gallery since its inception. Our exhibitions and educational activities are further supported through additional fundraising each year via trusts, foundations and sponsorship.
