7 April 2016 – 31 March 2017

Celebrating 50 years as part of the University of Cambridge 1966-2016

See the work of 25 artists from the Kettle’s Yard Collection in nine places and spaces across Cambridge.

We are celebrating the 50th anniversary of Jim Ede’s gift of Kettle’s Yard to the University of Cambridge. Jim Ede, a writer and former curator at the Tate, created and opened Kettle’s Yard in 1957. In November 1966 Kettle’s Yard became a University of Cambridge museum. We are delighted to be working with old and new friends, in the university and city, who have generously collaborated with us to make exhibitions and displays.

Reflecting our support for contemporary artists, Lucy Steggals and Jesse Wine are creating new installations at the Museum of Cambridge and Arbury Community Centre.

The exhibitions are accompanied by a lively programme of events across many of the venues, including an anniversary lecture and free talks by students from the University of Cambridge’s History of Art Department.

All the exhibitions are free and no booking necessary unless stated otherwise. Find out more about the exhibitions using the links on the left.
