Abbot Hall

Abbot Hall is currently showing a major exhibition by internationally renowned British artist Julie Brook. What is it That Will Last? (20 May – 30 December 2023) is an exhibition of film, sound, drawing and photography across both floors of Abbot Hall and offers a rare insight into an extensive body of work made in remote locations in Scotland, Japan and Cumbria. Selected by the artist, works from the gallery’s collection will be on display including pieces by John Ruskin, Barbara Hepworth, JMW Turner, Frank Auerbach and Elizabeth Frink.
Located in a Grade I listed Georgian building on the banks of the River Kent, Abbot Hall has an exceptional collection of historic and contemporary art. The collection is not on permanent display.
