Ian Giles 'Outhouse'

‘Outhouse’ is a mobile queer space traveling across East Anglia. The transparent walls of the cylindrical structure feature photographs and ephemera related to historic and contemporary LGBTQI+ culture from the East of England.

The Cambridge Show

This new exhibition brings together work by twenty-two artists who are based in and around Cambridge. Showcasing a cross-section of the artistic community operating in the local area, from photography to performance, the exhibition explores these artists’ diverse practices, and some of the themes and issues that they are engaging with right now.

Saturday opening: 75th Anniversary

Visit our new Special Exhibition, which brings together much of Robert S. Whipple's founding donation to the University of Cambridge - a collection formed just as people were beginning to consider the significance of the history of science.

Family activities and party games will run from 1.30pm - 4pm in the Learning Gallery.

Can't make this one? We host at least three Open Saturdays a year, usually during the Festival of Ideas, Science Festival, and Open Cambridge. Keep an eye on our website for more upcoming dates.
