Late Entry Early Doors Website Landscape.jpg

Pembroke Art Gallery is delighted to welcome back visitors this Autumn. Having been closed to the public since March 2020, we look forward to visitors exploring and enjoying the Gallery and the Pembroke College JCR Art Collection once again. 

This Autumn we are pleased to present Late Entry | Early Doors – a showcase of new acquisitions and the artworks which started the collection. Discover the collection’s first artworks, purchased in the late 1940s and early 1950s, alongside our latest acquisitions. Featuring painting, photography, prints and mixed-media artwork, the exhibition showcases artworks by John Piper, John Minton, Robert Colquhoun, Duncan Grant, Cecil Collins, Michael Ayrton, Peter Ibbetson, Victor Pasmore, Patrick Heron, Prunella Clough, and Percy Wyndham Lewis.  Whilst our new acquisitions include artworks by established artists: Chris Ofili, Lubaina Humid, Lina Iris Viktor, Silvia Rossi and Nadine Ijewere; and emerging artists: Mikela Henry-Lowe, Skai Campbell and Jade Pearl.

Late Entry | Early Doors is part of our continued commitment to acquiring new artwork for the collection, whilst championing artists and uplifting marginalised voices in the art world. We want to continue to consider new ways of working and thinking, whilst readdressing imbalances in our collection to be more relevant to our students and the public.

Emery Prize 2021 | Deshna Shah

The winner of the Emery Prize 2021 is Deshna Shah, a multi-media artist based in Manchester and London, whose work seeks to address her complex relationship to location, culture and belonging. Deshna uses her work to question the residual impacts of relocation, judgement and the unspoken especially within the South Asian diaspora. Her work fluidly meets at the crossroads of installation, dance, performance, filmmaking, new media, and critical theory. She has recently completed a BFA at the Ruskin. Deshna Shah will be exhibiting in Spring 2022. @deshnaart    |

Explore our collection with our new online exhibition Portraits: What you lookin' at?  Discover paintings, sculptures, photographs and drawings which depicture figures and faces. Some of the sitters stare out of the frame, looking back at the viewer. Others are seemingly unaware they are being watched, captured unawares.
