The Story of the Middlesbrough Collection

The story of the Middlesbrough Collection is told through a new display that charts the many phases of the collection and acknowledges those who have been involved in assembling it over 100 years. Beginning in the 1920s when local artists initiated an art collection, the Middlesbrough Art Gallery, Cleveland Gallery and Cleveland Crafts Centre each shaped the collection before it came under one roof at MIMA in 2007. It has since grown and developed as a site for research and engagement. The Collection comprises 2,350 works of art and craft made by artists based in the Tees Valley and internationally from the 1870s to today.
We are currently developing new spaces across the building to create more access to this important collection. Across autumn 2022 and spring 2023 we will launch dedicated spaces for its presentation of and research into our holdings.
