John Hansard Gallery

The John Hansard Gallery, based at the University of Southampton’s Highfield campus, is one of Britain’s leading public galleries of contemporary visual art. Proud of its academic situation, the Gallery plays a key role in the cultural life of the campus and the city, drawing a wide local, national and international audience to its esteemed programme of exhibitions and events. The Gallery’s highly regarded programme by British and international artists regularly tours venues throughout the UK and overseas.

Previous exhibitions have included 'Panacea' an artist's collaboration between Michael Pinsky and Walker & Bromwich;'There Where You Are Not' by Alec Finlay, Jeremy Millar, Guy Moreton; "Lines in the Sand" by Joan Jonas; and "20 Million Mexicans Can't be Wrong" with Francis Alÿs and Santiago Sierra. From the 11 February - 31 March 2012, the gallery hosted an art exhibition of new cutting edge 3d technology by designer David Cotterrell. David is an installation artist and launched this new exhibition entitled 'Monsters of the Id.' using a new 3d technique of creating art work. This interprets his experiences through image manipulation, staging, CGI, 3d scanning, 3d printing and new projection techniques.[1]


The John Hansard Building is building 50 in the University of Southampton building coding scheme. It was built in 1959. The architect was Ronald Sims.[2]
