As we work to improve our research and access offer, we are presently unable to accommodate requests to view artworks and posters in store. During this transformation process, we can consider viewings where the requester can demonstrate extenuating circumstances, including specific connections to artists or sitters in the collection, or significance to postgraduate research projects.

You can still access information on our art collection online, where you will find images of most of the posters in the collection.
