Stanley Picker Gallery at Kingston University

Stanley Picker Gallery at Kingston University is a public venue dedicated to the commissioning, production and presentation of innovative new practice across the fields of art, design and architecture. From its island location along the Hogsmill River, the Gallery generates an onsite, offsite and online programme of fellowships, exhibitions, projects and events that engages audiences within the University and the wider community, encourages the development of research excellence in the arts, and makes a significant contribution to the regional, national and international cultural environments. 

Stanley Picker Fellowships support contemporary art and design practitioners to create a significant body of new work as part of Kingston University’s wider research culture. Previous appointments include 2015 Turner Prize nominee Nicole Wermers, 2012 Turner Prize winner Elizabeth Price and London Design Medal recipients El Ultimo Grito. Our current Fellows are designers Onkar Kular and Yemi Awosile and artists Oreet Ashery and Simon Martin.
