East Gallery

East Gallery is a city centre public art space showcasing a programme of exhibitions by internationally recognised artists, curators, and design practitioners

Exhibitions are originated by Norwich University of the Arts or in collaboration with national and international partners. All our exhibitions are accompanied by seminars and lectures delivered by specialists and curators, which enrich the University experience for students and those living and working in Norwich, as well as visitors to our city.

This summer East Gallery is launching East Projects, a new series of exhibitions, performances and events that showcase current research from Norwich University of the Arts in the disciplines of Fine Art, Film, Photography, Design and Gaming.

The East Gallery venue and programme is funded by Norwich University of the Arts.

Current exhibition:

It is easy to be too far sighted when considering clay, to move too quickly from material to product, to perhaps visualize the polished or burnished, weighty or fragile, hardened object and to see it as the goal. In fact, artists are often praised for their ability to wield a material in such a way that it defies its natural qualities, celebrated for their heavy-handed manipulation, a process which relegates the journey with clay to mere methodology.
