Humber Street Gallery

Humber Street Gallery is an Absolutely Cultured project, bringing a vibrant, high-quality contemporary art space to Hull. The gallery’s free programme of exhibitions is supported by a series of talks, performances, screenings and workshops.

Absolutely Cultured puts culture at the heart of Hull’s ambition and aspirations, commissioning and producing a programme of events and projects which are ambitious, surprising and imaginative. In addition to the gallery and our broader cultural events, we continue to develop our world-class volunteer programme, to deliver initiatives to support the cultural sector and to offer access to creative learning opportunities.

To ensure our spaces are safe for both visitors and staff members, we have introduced new measures – including a booking system for exhibitions. Please read our FAQs before you come and visit us.

Jamie Crewe: Solidarity & Love
