Exhibitions

Featuring exhibitions from world-renowned artists alongside new arts stars of tomorrow, The Levinsky Gallery offers a sometimes provocative, sometimes beautiful and always thought-provoking experience. Based in the University's Roland Levinsky Building, it is the largest contemporary art gallery in Plymouth.

All exhibitions are free and include associated events for you to learn more about the artists and exhibits through gallery tours and artist and curator talks, as well as fun events for all the family.

Previously featured artists include: leading UK Photographer Jem Southam, award-winning artist Trevor Bell, Turner-prize winning artist Douglas Gordon, leading graphic designer, Ivan Chermayeff, Dorothy Cross, one of Ireland's leading international artists and internationally acclaimed artist and sculptor, Peter Randall-Page.

*Please note* The Levinsky Gallery is now closed for refurbishment


After a very busy year The Levinsky Gallery is in need of some TLC and will be closed over the summer for a fresh lick of paint and to install a new lighting system. 

We look forward to seeing you again in September when we launch into the new season, with the sensational Mariner exhibition.
