Are exhibitions free of charge?

  • Check the exhibition listing to see if the exhibition has charged entry.

I don’t feel comfortable visiting a gallery at the moment. Is there a way for me to be able to see exhibitions virtually?

  • Yes, GalleriesNow provides a number of ways to view exhibitions virtually. Viewing rooms are online-only exhibitions where galleries can delve into an artist, movement, or individual work in more detail. GalleriesNow VRs provide 360-degree views of exhibitions from multiple perspectives, allowing you to make a virtual visit without leaving your house. Download the free ArtPassport App on your phone and enjoy the gallery experience anywhere, anytime.

How do I book an appointment with a gallery to see an exhibition?

  • On each exhibition page there is a “contact gallery” link where you can arrange an appointment or ask for more information about works. There are also links to the galleries’ own websites on each gallery’s page.

Are galleries open at the moment?

  • Many, but not all galleries are currently open and those who are may well be taking precautions to ensure their visitors are as safe as possible. In the current situation it is advisable to contact the gallery if you are unsure as to their policy.

What measures are being taken by galleries to ensure visiting exhibitions is as safe as possible?

  • Galleries will be responding differently, depending on governmental advise and individual circumstance - often you will be required to book an appointment.
