The Ulster Museum plays host to a wide range of art exhibitions throughout the year. Visit the museum for a fun afternoon out and enjoy the current exhibitions including Crafted: The Fine Art of Furniture and the Bare Life art exhibition.
Crafted: The Fine Art of Furniture - on until 4 June 2017. The exhibition explores the change of style, material and functionality of furniture from the 18th century to the present day. Exhibition highlights include a magnificent 1740's elaborately carved mahogany Irish side table, an early Celtic Revival chair made in Belfast from bog oak and a chest of drawers, inspired by Ireland’s extreme weather in December 2010.
Bare Life art exhibition - on until 1 May 2017.Charts the development of twentieth-century British art, with a particular focus on the post-war period. The title Bare Life refers to the often uncompromising and experimental way in which a number of artists during this period responded to the human figure, from Walter Sickert and Francis Bacon to Gilbert and George and Matt Collishaw. The exhibition includes an important recent acquisition, Red Conservatory by John Walker.
