About your mentor
Aspex Portsmouth
Bringing new art and ideas to Portsmouth
Aspex brings new art and ideas to the heart of Portsmouth. As a visual arts and educational charity, our mission is to cultivate art, creativity and a collaborative community. We believe art makes our lives better, brings joy, broadens minds, facilitates learning and creates meaningful connections in our communities. We create opportunities for people of all ages and backgrounds to experience contemporary visual art – from looking and discussing, to making and curating. We achieve this by delivering an exciting and varied programme of exhibitions, off-site projects and participation events. For over 40 years, we have supported sensational artists at the early stages of their careers. Artists such as Mona Hatoum, Richard Wilson and Susan Collis, all now internationally-acclaimed, received support from Aspex.
