Art Vaults

Art Vaults exhibited contemporary works of art by emerging artists throughout the medieval vaults of Southampton’s old town. It was an innovative partnership project that grew over four summer seasons between 2004 an 2008.

ArtVaults was a popular event, with over 69,000 visitors enjoying the opportunity to explore Southampton’s heritage and to discover new works of art.

We look forward to future seasons of ArtVaults and are actively working towards again animating Southampton’s medieval underground through contemporary art. A new season of Art Vaults is currently being planned, set to return in 2018.

We would also like to extend our gratitude to FOSMAG, Southampton City Council, INEOS and Arts & Business who have also supported the project.
