Cartwright Hall is Bradford's civic art gallery and offers an exciting programme of contemporary exhibitions, with four permanent galleries displaying works from our art collections. The collections consist mainly of 19th and 20th century British art, with strong collections of international contemporary prints and contemporary South Asian art and crafts.
In 2008 Cartwright Hall re-opened its upper galleries with Connect, a new permanent exhibition funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. Connect makes connections between works of art from different cultures and times. This transcultural concept combines over two hundred Eastern and Western works of art displayed according to the universal themes of People, Place and Imagination.
Our Learning Team runs a programme of workshops and events for schools, groups and individuals. Many of Cartwright Hall's facilities are available for hire and the Gallery is also licensed for civil marriages. Please contact Reception for information in advance of your visit 01274 431212.
