Useful information for your visit

Our collections displays in the Sculpture Study Galleries are housed in the adjacent Leeds Art Gallery building, connected to the Institute via a bridge link. We advise entering Leeds Art Gallery at least 30 minutes before closing time.

We regret that there is no access other than via stairs to exhibitions in the Upper Sculpture Study Gallery.

Photography is not always possible in the galleries, with permissions varying between different lenders and exhibitions. Please ask at reception if you would like to take photos. In all cases, tripods and lighting equipment, including flashes, are not permitted in the galleries.

The Archive of Sculptors' Papers is open by prior appointment only. Please contact the Archivist to discuss making an appointment.
