The Municipal Gallery, located on the third floor of dlr LexIcon, is the first purpose built public gallery space in the county. It opened in December 2014 and since then we have shown a range of exhibitions and welcomed thousands of visitors. Our programme includes:
· commissioned exhibitions;
· touring exhibitions;
· advertised open call exhibitions, which allow artists to propose exhibition ideas selected by a specialist panel
We plan and design each gallery exhibition programme so that it includes both the artworks in the gallery space and a learning programme. Our learning programme gives visitors the chance to explore and engage with the artworks on show through events like talks, workshops, films and tours.
The programming team for the exhibition programmes is made up of dlr Arts Office staff members with specialist arts knowledge. We also work with closely with external curators, artists, key partner organisations and arts education specialists.
