City Gallery

City Gallery is excavating its archives to put documentation of past shows online. Some exhibition pages are under construction; more will be added. The Gallery welcomes feedback, suggestions, and corrections. Given the scale and nature of the operation, copyright clearances have not been sought for all material. We invite anyone with concerns to get in touch. Archive digitisation has been supported by the Lottery Grants Board.
