Bonington Gallery

About

Founded in 1969, Bonington Gallery has been at the forefront of Nottingham’s rich and vibrant visual arts community for over fifty years.

Situated at the heart of Nottingham Trent University’s (NTU) School of Art & Design, the gallery's exhibitions and events are completely free to access, and open to the public. Past exhibitions have featured local, national and international artists, including Hetain Patel, Frank Stella, Tacita Dean, Permindar Kaur, Sonia Boyce, Isaac Julien, Steve McQueen, Glenn Ligon and Andrew Logan. As well as exhibitions they offer an events programme of talks, workshops, film screenings and performances.

Inside the Bonington Building, you’ll find the main Gallery space, the Bonington Vitrines – micro-exhibitions in display cases, a cabinet showcasing highlights from the archive, and satellite exhibitions in their atrium space. While you’re visiting the Gallery, why not grab a drink or a bite to eat at Café Bonington. Open to all, the café offers hot and cold drinks and a range of sweet and savoury lunch / snack food to eat in or takeaway, including vegan and vegetarian options. Also located nearby, Boningtons Art Shop is one of the few remaining art supplies shops in the city, and is open to the public Monday – Fridays during NTU term time.
