Cartwright Hall is Bradford's civic art gallery and offers a programme of contemporary exhibitions, as well as four permanent galleries displaying works from its art collections.
The hall is set in the magnificent, Green Flag-awarded grounds of Lister Park, with a boating lake and Mughal Gardens. The collections consist mainly of 19th- and 20th-century British art, with a strong group of international contemporary prints and contemporary South Asian art and crafts reflecting the rich cultural and social diversity of Bradford itself. It also features a gallery devoted to the early work of David Hockney.
In July 2017 the hall will open a new permanent gallery celebrating the life and work of David Hockney.
