Milton Keynes Gallery (MK G) is the citys purpose built space for changing exhibitions of international contemporary art. It opened in 1999 and presents 6-8 free exhibitions a year by both emerging and established artists. According to Tate Director, Sir Nicholas Serota, In a very short time Milton Keynes Gallery has made an invaluable contribution to the growing impact and public recognition of the visual arts in this country through the creativity, quality and ambition of its programme.

MK Gs programme reflects the wide range of contemporary art practice in the UK and beyond, and has included painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, photography, film and video, installations and live or performance art. MK G also has an emerging offsite programme, commissioning artists to present temporary projects in and around the city .

The gallery building makes a distinctive city centre landmark, with its striking commission from Michael Craig-Martin in 2004 to coincide with his exhibition marking MK Gs 5th anniversary. Inside the space is arranged as three versatile galleries on the ground floor and an Education Events Room on the first floor. The Gallery Shop in the Foyer sells exhibition related books, catalogues, limited edition prints, visual art magazines and cards. There is full wheelchair access throughout the gallery.

MK G offers a range of public talks and events in support of its exhibitions, including some for younger visitors, such as the Saturday Art Trolley with free art activities suitable for accompanied children ages 4-12. MK G also runs holiday workshops for children and occasional Family Days. Details can be found by visiting our website.
