Wolverhampton Art Gallery and the University of Wolverhampton School of Art are raring to go for the prestigious British Art Show 9.

British Art Show 9 (BAS9) will be in the city from Saturday, January 22 to Sunday, April 10, providing a major boost to the recognition of arts and culture in Wolverhampton – the first English city to host the ninth edition of the show.

Over the course of BAS9 each venue will be hosting events as well as working with creative partners and schools, colleges, and community groups to get them involved with the biggest touring exhibition of contemporary art in the UK.

In Wolverhampton, the exhibition will focus on how we live with and give voice to difference, showcasing 34 artists whose works investigate identity from an intersectional perspective. By exploring coexisting identities such as class, ethnicity, gender, and sexuality, these works will be presented in critical dialogue with Wolverhampton’s cultural history which has been shaped by the diverse populations that came to work and live there during the post-war period.

Wolverhampton Art Gallery houses one of the most significant collections of art on ‘The Troubles’ outside Northern Ireland. It also collects works linked to the British Black Arts movement which has its roots in the city as many of its members studied at Wolverhampton School of Art. As part of the BAS9 exhibition at Wolverhampton Art Gallery there will be a capsule display of selected works from its collection.


There will be over 60 events to get involved in and an Offsite 9 Project in partnership with Creative Black Country. For more information on British Art Show 9 and the events on offer in Wolverhampton visit the British Arts Show 9 website.
