About this collection

Since its opening in 1877 the Walker Art Gallery has collected contemporary art. In recent years this has included art works in ‘new media’, including video and animation art, as well as art installations.

Some of these works use new technology to reflect on contemporary issues such as industrialisation and its impact, including Nancy Davenport’s (born 1965) ‘Workers (Leaving the Factory)’. Others, like Bill Viola (born 1951), have used it to address subjects that have occupied artists for generations, including religion and death.
