Applications are currently being invited from artists wishing to exhibit in Barbican Library during 2024. All are welcome but we particularly aim to promote artists who have not exhibited before in the City of London or don’t have access to regular gallery spaces.
The space is available for public exhibitions lasting approximately one month, with
free admission to the public. Most forms of artwork can be accommodated within
the space, and a variety of equipment facilities are available.
The Library is housed in the prestigious Barbican Arts Centre and receives an
average of 1,200 people through the Library doors a day, making this an attractive
venue for exposure of artwork and information.
Currently the Library makes a £100 administration charge for all exhibitions and a
commission on sales of 20% is taken.
Applications are invited from individuals or groups of artists - please select the relevant attached application form. They can be found on this page, scroll to the bottom:
Application forms can also be collected from Barbican Library.
