John Hansard Gallery

The John Hansard Gallery is a contemporary visual art gallery located at the University of Southampton. It is one of the United Kingdom's leading galleries.

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, and Guy Moreton; "Lines in the Sand" by Joan Jonas; and "20 Million Mexicans Can't be Wrong" with Francis Alÿs and Santiago Sierra.

From 11 February to 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]
