Founded in the 1960s and celebrating its 15th year in Brindleyplace, IKON gallery is the most established contemporary art space in Birmingham. Newly appointed curator Stuart Tulloch gave us the the low-down on the kind of artists and projects they work with.
IKON Gallery has had almost fifty years to establish itself as a leading contemporary art space. It has a reputation is for showcasing important international artists at exciting stages of their careers.
They work hard to encourage public engagement and run an exciting programme of educational activities and off-site projects. One such venture is Slow Boat which is a project working with the Ikon Youth Project and contemporary artists along the canals and waterways of the area.
