John Walker: Works from the University of Birmingham Campus Art Collection 1966-1996

Please note: In order to minimise the risk to staff, students and our wider community, the University of Birmingham campus has moved to restricted operations. During this time University staff will be working remotely and the majority of buildings and facilities within the campus will be closed.  This means that our current John Walker exhibition and our wider collections displays will not be accessible to the public until further notice. The team are currently looking at content we can create to make our fantastic collections accessible online in these difficult times.

From 1960s minimalism to richly allegorical prints and paintings of the 1990s, this exhibition explores the visual language of internationally acclaimed artist John Walker, showcasing a selection of works from the University of Birmingham’s Campus Art Collection.
