Placing the artist at its core, Art Exchange is a space where art, artists and audiences can meet. Our programme of exhibitions, talks and events creates a platform for ideas to be exchanged and connections to be made.

We show international, contemporary art by established and emerging artists, historic figures who continue to inspire, and group shows relevant to current debate. Our artist-in-residence programme lets us commission new works that respond to the world around us, while working with MA Curating students allows further perspectives to be shared.

Sited at the University of Essex, Art Exchange is inspired by an intellectually curious audience, while the research and study around us feeds into our programme of talks, films and debate.

We want everyone to get involved and enjoy great art!
