Solent Showcase is the first major addition to Southampton?s emerging cultural quarter and is situated on the new city square, near the City Art Gallery and the forthcoming Sea City Museum.

Solent Showcase features contemporary visual art that encourages engagement, discussion and participation with the whole community. The creation of Solent Showcase coincided with the expansion of the art courses at the University, generating a new era of visual creativity at Solent.

Solent Showcase supports up-and-coming national and international artists to provide examples of the best contemporary art; inspiring both students and a wider audience. It embraces the idea of cross-disciplinary collaboration to highlight the creative talents of the University, highlighting contemporary ideas and seeking to engage the widest possible audience.
