Site Gallery, 1 Brown Street, Sheffield, S1 2BS – Visit Now

After a three-year long £1.7 million expansion and redevelopment project, Sheffield’s leading international contemporary art space reopens this Autumn – and everyone’s very excited to see what the new Site Gallery holds in store.

After starting life as an independent photography gallery in 1978, its programme broadened from 1995 onwards to include international contemporary artists working across a range of media. Today it specialises in moving image, new media and performance, showcasing work by both early career and firmly-established artists, as well as hosting residencies and a busy performance, events and community programme.

Behind its new, almost 40m long Danish brick façade, the gallery’s public area has tripled in size; now featuring a much larger exhibition space; a new entrance, bookshop, and education and events area; and a community-run café. It’s all change in terms of staff too, most significantly announcing its new artistic director Sharna Jackson in July.

Make sure you catch the Site Gallery opening festival weekend 28-30 Sep, showcasing and celebrating art and artists, spotlighting the new gallery spaces, encouraging participation and community spirit.

Positioned less than a two-minute walk from the train station, next door to Sheffield’s much-loved independent cinema The Showroom, and at the heart of the city’s historic Cultural Industries Quarter, a visit to Site Gallery is not to be missed. Check out other art galleries and museums nearby.
