Ikon is an internationally acclaimed art gallery situated in central Birmingham, offering free entry to all. Founded in 1965 as an artists-led alternative space, it has evolved into one of the most internationalist artistic programmes in Europe combining established with emerging artists. 

Housed in a magnificent neo-gothic school building, it is an educational charity for the promotion of visual art of international significance, playing a key role in the cultural life of the region. 

Education is at the heart of ikon’s activities. Our learning team builds meaningful relationships with ikon’s audiences that enables visitors to engage with, discuss and reflect on contemporary art. 

Ikon’s off-site programme develops dynamic relationships between art, artists and audiences outside the gallery, challenging expectations of where art can be seen and by whom.
