BRICK BY BRICK presents an exciting display of artwork by international artists, designers and photographers who use LEGO® bricks as their medium or inspiration. The exhibition features a range of two and three-dimensional work in a variety of scales and formats, from jewellery to sculpture and photography, aiming to showcase the wide range of creative approaches that artists take when using this iconic construction brick.

Referencing themes as wide as mythology, Afrofuturism and popular music culture, to current social and political commentary, these thought-provoking and often humorous artworks will appeal to contemporary art enthusiasts and LEGO® fans alike. Several of the artworks have been created especially for this exhibition by internationally recognised artists such as Michael Brennand-Wood, James Paterson and Ekow Nimako.

There are a whole range of opportunities for visitors to get creative with construction bricks, including a LEGO® wall and a mystery word trail. We will also be offering a range of family-friendly events and workshops throughout the course of the exhibition, so keep an eye on our website and social media for updates and come along and get creative!
