About Us

The New Art Exchange (NAE) is a pioneering creative space in Hyson Green, Nottingham.


We’re the UK’s largest gallery dedicated to contemporary visual arts from the Global Ethnic Majority. We set out to reshape the contemporary art narrative by championing diversity and inclusivity and by providing a platform for underrepresented voices in the art world.

Our vision is for talent from the Global Ethnic Majority to be recognised, nurtured, and celebrated. We’re here to champion inclusivity and equity in the creative industries.

We’re committed to a fair, equitable, inclusive and equal art world for everyone. We do this through talent development, delivered through our Connect-Create-Cultivate-Transform-Exchange model. This is also supported by a collaborative and inclusive approach through our embedded citizen-led decision-making model.

2024 will recognise NAE as the first cultural institution in the world with a permanent citizen assembly as a key part of its leadership structure – we call this the VOICE assembly.
