aspex does not have its own collection, but specialises in supporting contemporary artists at an early stage in their career and is a showcase for new work being made at a regional, national and international level.
When we use the term ‘contemporary art’, we mean new work by living artists.
Artists working today use an enormous variety of techniques, including many that might not even be thought of as being ‘art’ in the traditional sense of painting or sculpture.
You can expect to see this variety of approaches reflected in the diverse and ever changing programme of exhibitions at aspex as contemporary artists try to create new ways of experiencing the world.
