Ikon Gallery

From its beginnings in a small kiosk in Birmingham’s Bullring, Ikon’s reputation for innovation, internationalism and excellence has developed over 40 years. Now housed in the neo-gothic Oozells Street School, Ikon has an artistic programme consisting of four interdependent strands. The gallery features temporary exhibitions over two floors totalling 450m². A variety of media is represented, including sound, film, mixed media, photography, painting, sculpture and installation. Learning is at the heart of Ikon’s activities, stimulating public interest in and understanding of contemporary visual art. Through a variety of talks, tours, workshops and seminars, the learning team aims to build a meaningful relationship with Ikon’s audience that enables visitors to engage with, discuss and reflect on contemporary art.
