Exhibitions for Expotitions (By Closing Date — Updated 8 June 2021)

I used to maintain a list of exhibitions, because I kept missing stuff. I recreated  this when it badly went out of date, and obviously this took time. Then Covid struck — stuff reopened and shut and… So I’m reconstructing from scratch.

I used to say check opening days/hours before travelling and whether stuff is free, but you probably need to book a slot. Some places the slot is a day, others it is a fifteen minute window. Check their websites for details.

Information is presented in good faith and I can’t pretend to completist but let me know of stuff I’ve missed and I may add.

I’m based in the south-east UK so, with the exception of Dublin, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Tate St Ives, it’s stuff I can do in a day trip (unless I want to make an exception). 


I recommend the National Art Pass for their discount  — this and Tate/Royal Academy membership pay for themselves if London is getatable.
