Newcastle University's Hatton Gallery has been at the North East’s cultural since the early 20th century.

The gallery underwent an extensive redevelopment in 2017 in order to conserve the historic and architectural elements of the Grade II listed building while creating a modern exhibition space. 

Hatton Gallery is home to a beautifully diverse collection of over 3,000 works from the 14th century to the present day, the iconic Merz Barn Wall by one of the most significant figures in 20th century art, Kurt Schwitters, being one of them. The wall was brought to the gallery in 1965 and incorporated into the fabric of the building.

Other key pieces include work by Francis Bacon, Richard Hamilton, Palma Giovane, Thomas Bewick, Eduardo Paolozzi, Camillo Procaccini, Patrick Heron, William Roberts, Victor Pasmore and Richard Ansdell to name a few. Watercolours by Wyndham Lewis, Thomas Hair and Robert Jobling are also held.

Alongside this, the Hatton stages a programme of modern and contemporary art exhibitions, and events including artist and curator talks as well as activities your whole family can enjoy. We work closely with students from Newcastle University and are proud to exhibit their work on an annual basis.
