If you are in the mood for contemporary art, then you need look no further than Portikus. It was founded in 1987 and acts as a facility for the local academy of arts. It was created to cater for the display and publishing needs of young artists who may not have any other way of being noticed.

As well as being a launchpad for young artists, it hosts the work of contemporary artists too. This allows the viewer to absorb a combination of the tried and tested and the new and adventurous. It has something for every art lover.
