The Contemporary department was established in 2005 and the new 1,000 square foot space added a progressive dimension to the already prestigious and established history of the gallery whilst retaining independent programming. The Contemporary team have embraced the nineteenth and twentieth century heritage of the gallery and increased cross-cultural links, particularly in Asia, Australia and the US.
Exciting artists have joined the gallery’s core stable and these are complimented by internationally recognised artists who participate in critically engaged survey shows at the gallery, as well as a growing number of global art fairs annually. In October 2014, the Contemporary team organised the biggest ever exhibition in the history of the gallery, the critically acclaimed What Marcel Duchamp Taught Me.
