Mon 1 - Fri 19 Oct 2018

From Monday 1 October - Friday 19 October the main galleries upstairs will be closed as our exhibition team undertake the installation of Patrick Heron and Akram Zaatari.

At this time, our team will be constructing and painting walls, installing Akram Zaatari's works and hanging Patrick Heron's paintings, the largest being almost 4m wide.

Our café and shop will be open as usual, as will the Sunley gallery.

If you visit during this changeover period, you will be able to see Perpetual Canon in our Sunley Gallery, by Turner Prize nominee Cornelia Parker, and artwork by Kent-based graduate artists in the Platform Graduate Award 2018 exhibition.

Every day you can see Antony Gormley's ANOTHER TIME out on the sea shore, and Jyll Bradley's Dutch/Light (for Agneta Block) on our terrace.

On the front of Droit House, looking over Margate Sands, you can see Tracey Emin's neon I Never Stopped Loving You, particularly poignant as the sun begins to set.
