Collection enquiries 

We endeavour to answer queries from researchers and other professionals in a timely fashion, but may be delayed due to other commitments. Contact us using the form below, making sure to state the nature of your research and your institutional affiliation. Unfortunately, we do not have the capacity to reply to general collection enquiries.

Exhibition proposals  

Manchester Art Gallery has a mixed programme of contemporary, historic, fine and decorative art, and costume and photography exhibitions. The programme is planned three or more years in advance. Our exhibitions and displays originate from our in-house curatorial team, direct invitations to artists, and collaborations with other museums, galleries, universities or professional organisations. Our exhibition and display areas are not available for hire.

Due to the high volume of proposals we receive, we’re unable to review unsolicited proposals from individuals or their representatives.

General enquiries 

For all other enquiries, please use the contact form below. We aim to respond within 10 working days, although a full response may take longer in some cases. We cannot answer general art enquiries or give valuations.
