About

BCU a Year in Pictures at Parksdie Gallery

Parkside Gallery is a leading art and design exhibition space within Birmingham City University's Parkside Building, with an emphasis on, but not confined to, design-led practice.

Open to the public throughout the year, visitors can expect to see a diverse range of shows throughout the academic year, culminating in the University's very own Art, Design and Media graduate shows each summer.

The space is an integral part of Birmingham City University's teaching and learning environment, but is also an ideal space for the public to visit and be inspired.

There is also an adjacent coffee shop and seating area for refreshments.

Exhibitions from international artists

Amongst others, since opening in 2013, Parkside Gallery has played host to the work of:

  • Ian Emes, who created animated films for Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon
  • Day and Hille, an exploration of the evolution of the polypropylene chair
  • The Metabolic Landscape, an internationally significant photographic exploration of issues concerning renewable energy
  • Tibor Reich: Drawings exploring the drawings of one of the UK’s most prolific mid-century textile designers and manufacturer.
