John Hansard Gallery is one of Britain's leading public galleries of contemporary art. Part of the University of Southampton, we support, develop and present work by outstanding artists from across the world. Established in 1979, we are proud to play a dynamic role in the cultural life of Southampton and the region. We're a place to visit for extraordinary experiences, where you can see and think about the world differently.Open: Tuesday to Friday 11am-5pm / Saturday 11am-4pm / Free

Our programme consists of five exhibitions per year in our main site in Highfield, alongside innovative off-site projects in other citywide locations and touring projects with galleries and institutions elsewhere in the UK and internationally. We aim to reveal the rich diversity of contemporary art, from emerging talents to major international figures, from solo projects to historical surveys, and from painting, sculpture and photography, to film, performance, installations and digital media. Rooted in a research-led ethos, our programme seeks to bring together rigorous scholarship and contemporary art practice, presented to the widest possible audience.Learning is at the heart of everything we do. Throughout the year you can take part in events and activities for all ages, including artist talks and tours, creative workshops and panel discussions, plus seminars and conferences exploring the wider context of our exhibitions. We also lead a range of initiatives with schools and community organisations, including pioneering work with disadvantaged young people from the Solent region.John Hansard Gallery actively supports the scholarship and publication of critical writing and has published over eighty exhibition catalogues, which are available to buy from our Shop. We regularly commission new writing as part of our ongoing publishing activities with artists.At the heart of our programme is the belief that contemporary art can transform the way we look at - and understand – the world, and inspire people from all backgrounds and ages.
