Our collections

The University is home to one of the richest cultural collections in the North East, including Asian art, modern art, manuscripts and archives.

The collection of modern art alone presents work by some of the most significant artists of the 20th and 21st centuries and specialises in print-based media.

Ten artworks are displayed on a white wall, photographed from above.
