March 2020 update – Covid-19

The Art Collection team are working remotely, developing both short term and long term plans for our work.

We remain committed to supporting artists and building a Collection that tells a story of now through three collecting strands:

· Chinese Contemporary Art;
· About the Digital;
· From the North.

We are continuing to work with all our partner organisations, to commission new work by artists at all stages of their careers.

More details will be announced shortly, however we would welcome any feedback, comments or suggestions in the meantime.

Please stay safe and stay at home!
