Beyond the Frame
Schools exhibition & special
collection display

Throughout 2016 Grundy Art Gallery is undertaking a year of activity exploring its permanent collection. During the course of the year the Gallery is working with contemporary artists to create new work in response to the collection; upgrading the gallery’s environmental controls and making repairs to the store; developing the collection through new acquisitions; and working with young people to interpret items from the collection in new ways.

Beyond the Frame includes a special collection display, presenting the ways in which we care for and preserve the Gallery’s permanent collection, alongside a presentation of work by young people from Blackpool who have taken paintings from the Grundy collection as starting points for new storytelling and portraiture.
