Holding an exhibition at the Library of Birmingham

The Library of Birmingham works with a range of partners to deliver exhibitions, displays and installations at the city’s iconic library in Centenary Square.

We have hosted exhibitions for individual artists, local community groups, regional, national, and international organisations for a number of years.

Exhibitions at the Library of Birmingham are usually educational in flavour. They are often inspired by Birmingham’s unique archival collections and provide visitors with a fresh perspective on diverse subjects, ranging from Shakespeare to the culture of Birmingham’s Wholesale Markets, from the Industrial Revolution to the history of allotments in Birmingham.
