From 2nd November

Aberdeen Art Gallery‘s long-awaited re-opening will take place on 2nd November, following a once-in-a-lifetime transformation, billed as its most significant investment since it first opened in 1885, and aiming to be the city’s most inspiring, accessible and welcoming public building, to enjoy for generations to come.

Expecting large numbers of visitors the first weekend, entry will be by pre-booked ticket, with staggered entry times, but from Monday 4th November no ticket will be required.

Among the highlights will be free performances of The Big Picture by celebrated Scottish composer Judith Weir, on Saturday 2 November, 10am and 11am. Commissioned for the re-opening of the Gallery, Cowdray Hall and Remembrance Hall, the piece celebrates the inspiring power of art and music.
