Cartwright Hall is Bradford's civic art gallery and offers an exciting programme of contemporary exhibitions, with four permanent galleries displaying works from our art collections. The collections consist mainly of 19th and 20th century British art, with strong collections of international contemporary prints and contemporary South Asian art and crafts.

In 2008 Cartwright Hall re-opened its upper galleries with Connect, a new permanent exhibition funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. Connect makes connections between works of art from different cultures and times. This transcultural concept combines over two hundred Eastern and Western works of art displayed according to the universal themes of People, Place and Imagination.

Our Learning Team runs a programme of workshops and events for schools, groups and individuals. Many of Cartwright Hall's facilities are available for hire. Please contact Reception for information in advance of your visit 01274 431212.

Cartwright Hall has been collecting prints for over one hundred years and its collection includes works by master printmakers such as Francisco Goya, William Blake and Walter Sickert and by modern masters - Pop Artists Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and Richard Hamilton. We also have the four major series of prints produced by David Hockney; Six Fairy Tales from the Brothers Grimm, The Blue Guitar, A Rake’s Progress and Illustrations of the Poetry of C. P. Cavafy. For enquires regarding the print collection please contact cartwrighthall@bradford.gov.uk
