Aspex Guildhall

Aspex Guildhall is a gallery space in the heart of the city which aims to showcase the very best in contemporary art, from emerging artists based in the South of England.

Aspex Guildhall is a partnership between Aspex and the Portsmouth Cultural Trust (Portsmouth Guildhall), launched in early 2014.

Past exhibitions have included 'Merch' by Petting Zoo Prints & Collectables, 'All That Other Mother Jazz' by Jonny Hannah and a showcase of digital prints from Portsmouth artist Dave Thompson -- just to name a few!

“We are really excited to be collaborating with the Portsmouth Cultural Trust, which gives us the opportunity to reach more visitors with a gallery space right in the centre of Portsmouth. Our diverse exhibitions programme is a blend of some of the very best artists we have shown at Aspex, along with specially curated exhibitions specifically for the Guildhall."
