The Peltz Gallery is at the heart of the creative hub that is Birkbeck's School of Arts, which also includes Birkbeck Cinema and a dedicated performance space.
Founded in 2013 with the help of a generous donation from Elizabeth and Daniel Peltz, the Peltz Gallery showcases the creative, interdisciplinary and experimental research of the School's academics and postgraduates. It also provides curatorial and professional training for postgraduate students. Exhibitions profile the work of emerging and established artists and aim to stimulate intellectual engagements between academics and practitioners.
Since opening, the Gallery has gone from strength to strength, with a comprehensive programme of exhibitions and events. We have a growing reputation for exploring the critical role of visual art in politically and historically contentious topics and in humanitarian debates.
