Exhibition: Pioneers of plastic Have you discovered The Parkside Gallery?

One of Birmingham’s best contemporary art and exhibition spaces.
Why not visit the gallery at our Parkside Building this month for Day and Hille: Pioneers of Plastic – In 1963 Hille furniture and renowned designer Robin Day launched one of the most significant chairs of the 20th century - the 'Polyprop' side chair, this historical exhibition traces its evolution. Admission is free.

Our art and design provision has had many names since it was founded in 1843 — most recently it was known as the Birmingham Institute of Art and Design (BIAD).
