Film: Welcome to the Collection

4 February – 10 May

Art Lounge, Level 2

To celebrate the launch of our three year National Partners Programme with Arts Council Collection we brought together a fantastic group of people from Sunderland to introduce them to the Collection’s vast and extraordinary archive of modern and contemporary art.

Follow their journey on film as they travel across the UK to delve into the Collection’s archives, learn more about the artworks, and select their personal favourites to share with you.

Enjoy the film in the cosy surroundings of our brand-new visitor area – the Art Lounge! Located at the top of the stairs on the second floor, the Art Lounge is a relaxing space dedicated to exploring the Arts Council Collection itself. So, settle down, and take time out to browse the collection, discover short films, or dip into catalogues to learn more about this amazing Collection of art.

Sunderland Culture is an Arts Council Collection National Partner. Find out more about the Arts Council Collection National Partners Programme. The Arts Council Collection is managed by Southbank Centre, London on behalf of Arts Council England.
