Patrick Heron is a retrospective exhibition that celebrates one of the most significant and innovative figures in 20th century British art. Patrick Heron played a vital role in the development of post-war abstract painting and this is the first major show of his work for twenty years.

Akram Zaatari is a touring exhibition of work by the internationally renowned Lebanese artist whose work is based on researching and studying the photographic record in the context of modern Arab societies. Through his practice Zaatari seeks to explore people’s attitudes while filming or photographing themselves.
