UCL Art Museum is an experimental space for interdisciplinary interrogation of the image. Our exhibitions programme is built around collaborations – with researchers from other disciplines, contemporary artists, other museums and university art collections. Each collaboration explores the intersections between making, teaching and collecting art and the broader socio-political context of these cultural practices. Located at the heart of UCL’s main Bloomsbury campus, UCL Art Museum is uniquely positioned to support interdisciplinary research and share this with a broad audience. At the core of what we do is exhibitions, research and teaching and this is reflected in the organisation of our multipurpose museum space. Our collections consist of many unique groups of material of international importance dating from the 1490s to the present day. A selection of these is on permanent display in the public and semi-public rooms in the College, including paintings, sculptures and murals. Works in our reserve collections are available for viewing by appointment by researchers. These include prize-winning student work from the Slade School of Fine Art, prints and drawings by Old Master artists such as Dürer, Rembrandt, Turner and Constable, and sculpture models by the renowned Neo-Classical artist John Flaxman – the largest group of works by this sculptor in any collection.
