Modern Art Oxford, formerly known as The Museum of Modern Art, Oxford, is an art museum that hosts a programme of temporary exhibits of modern and contemporary art.

What to see at Modern Art Oxford

As Modern Art Oxford does not have a permanent art collection, its exhibition space is devoted to temporary exhibitions. This means that the current exhibition programme dictates whether the gallery is worth visiting or not.

For the most part, this is not an art gallery that will appeal to many visitors to Oxford as many of the exhibitions are a little too far to the ‘experimental’ end of modern art and most exhibitions simply are nowhere near the calibre of what you would find somewhere like the Tate Modern.

Current and future exhibitions include:

Kiki Smith: I am a Wanderer
The I am a Wanderer exhibition (28 September 2019–19 January 2020) is Kiki Smith’s first solo UK exhibition in almost 25 years.

Johanna Unzueta: Tools for Life
The Tools for Life exhibition (8 February–10 May 2020) is the New York-based Chilean artist’s first solo UK exhibition, which features a large-scale wall mural, handmade garments and freestanding paper works.

Visiting Modern Art Oxford

Modern Art Oxford is on Pembroke Street in the city centre next door to the rear entrance to Marks and Spencer.

Admission to the gallery is free of charge.

There is a nice cafe and bar in the gallery’s basement that has a healthy selection of open sandwiches and hot plates as well as drinks including tea, coffee, beer and wine. However, the city centre location also means that there are plenty of places to eat and drink nearby including the Royal Blenheim pub next door.
