About

Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art has been bringing art from around the world to Sunderland and revealing the depth of talent in the North-East for 50 years.

Working closely with artists, it stages exhibitions and events, creates publications and most recently, has begun to create a collection of contemporary art for the future.

Since 2017, the gallery has been based inside National Glass Centre, where it has focused on new work made in photography, film & video, and twenty-first century media.

The gallery has a reputation for identifying new talent locally and internationally, having awarded artists with their first ever public exhibitions from Sean Scully in 1972 through to Marvin Gaye Chetwynd. It has brought artists who have never shown in the UK to these shores from Cory Arcangel to Harun Farocki.
