The Beaney is home to a diverse and ever changing programme of temporary exhibitions which take place across three dedicated temporary exhibition spaces.

Recent exhibitions include May The Toys Be With You, an exhibition of vintage Star Wars Toys and original cinema posters, Only in England, an exhibition of photography by Tony Ray-Jones and Martin Parr and Grayson Perry’s The Vanity of Small Differences, a collection of six large scale tapestries created for the BAFTA award-winning Channel 4 Series All in the Best Possible Taste.

The Beaney’s artistic programme is developed specifically to make connections between the different elements of the building; visual arts, collections, books, writing and the library.
