    MK50: New Town, Tomorrow’s City

    MK Gallery Project Space call for exhibitions

    In 2017 Milton Keynes will be 50 years old and as a result we are looking to celebrate the past, present and future of the city. MK Council are co-ordinating a year-long programme of activities to mark Milton Keynes and its pioneers, creating shared memories and connecting with its design, architecture, green spaces, industry, culture and people. For 2017 MK Gallery is working with the MK50 team to exhibit three MK50 specific month-long exhibitions as part of a year-long Project Space Programme.

    From January 2017 MK Gallery’s Project Space will present a series of twelve monthly exhibitions of contemporary visual art created by individuals and groups based in Milton Keynes. Facilitated by MK Gallery’s Learning Team, the purpose of the programme is to encourage collaborations between educators, artists, groups and local communities. Three open exhibition slots are programmed to mark the MK50 celebrations. These fall in January, June and November 2017. MK Gallery’s Learning Team invites proposals for exhibitions of new or existing work that connects with the themes of both MK50 and City Club - MK Gallery’s site redevelopment.
