The exciting broad collection of 20th and 21st century art on campus at the University of Warwick is amazing. Keen to proclaim the wealth of Art available for all students of the Arts, whether practical Fine Art, Photography, or a Design brief, established famous names are represented and new additions keep the collection vibrant and current. We encourage visits to the collection as the majority is accessible.
General Tours of the collection are available and a bespoke tour to accommodate a particular request on a theme, medium or artist for example, can be arranged to suit a group of students’ requirements. To this aim the Mead Gallery and Art Collection Team have researched the themes appearing in GCSE and A-Level Art exams 2018-2021. These themes have been allocated to one of 7 categories which incorporate similar ideas and connections, although many items can represent more than one category. Each category has a selection of work by 10 different artists and include a mix of material, technique and style. These themes can also be studied alongside the regular Mead Gallery exhibitions.
