In 2016, Modern Art Oxford celebrates 50 years as an internationally acclaimed powerhouse of contemporary visual culture. KALEIDOSCOPE is a year long series of interlinking exhibitions, performances and events, presenting an unmissable opportunity to reflect on some of the great moments in Modern Art Oxford’s history.
Because it’s a special year, we decided to try something a little different. Instead of closing when artwork is being installed, the galleries will be open all year round in 2016. This is so you can glimpse behind the scenes to see the exhibitions being made. In KALEIDOSCOPE you’ll see historic works from our past exhibitions sharing space with an exciting roster of new commissions.
Artworks returning to the gallery from across the world appear alongside works by artists showing for the first time at Modern Art Oxford. The past and the present are blended in what we hope you will find an engaging, reflexive shows that touch on one of our most enduring preoccupations – the nature of time.
