Ikon is an internationally acclaimed contemporary art venue.
Housed in the beautifully converted neo-Gothic Oozells Street School in central Birmingham, Ikon shows the very best of British and international art. Highlights over recent years have included exhibitions of work by Thomas Bewick, Carmen Herrera, Julian Opie, Kitagawa Utamaro and Andy Warhol. Ikon provides a wide range of free talks, tours and workshops in addition to its exhibition programme.
In 2015, the Museum ran a highly successful Art Happens crowdfunding campaign to move the entire contents of photographer Vanley Burke's flat to the Gallery for the exhibition, At Home with Vanley Burke.
