Studio 3 Gallery is a dedicated exhibition space within the University’s award-winning School of Arts Jarman Building. The £6.6m building – named after iconic artist Derek Jarman – was opened officially by Dame Liz Forgan, Chair of Arts Council England, in October 2010.
Housing state-of-the-art facilities including drama and film studios, computing and editing suites, teaching rooms and the Studio 3 Gallery, the Jarman Building received a RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) Award in May 2010. The RIBA judges said the building ‘demonstrates how good design can improve learning and is an exemplar for future campus architecture’.
Since its opening, Studio 3 Gallery has developed an innovative programme of exhibitions that combines art historical scholarship and cutting-edge contemporary art, working with leading artists like Ana Maria Pacheco, Art & Language, John Blackburn and Paul Coldwell.
