Hardwick Campus

Hardwick Gallery was established in 2014 within the refurbished Hardwick campus at the University of Gloucestershire. The gallery presents a public programme of exhibitions and residencies, artist talks, panel discussions and in-conversation events, gallery tours and audio guides, networking events and workshops.

Exhibitions are selected by invitation, and periodically by open call, in collaboration with students from across the School of Art & Design. We are not currently seeking exhibition proposals – sign up to our mailing list (below) to receive information about forthcoming exhibitions, events and future opportunities.

The exhibition and event programme is curated by Sarah Bowden, founder of MEANTIME Project-Space. Hardwick Gallery’s programme continues MEANTIME’s commitment to artistic enquiry, exploring the possibilities of a new model of institution, combining education and research with an artist-led initiative to create a rigorous and experimental context for engagement in contemporary artistic practice.
