Two Queens is an artist-run gallery and studios situated in Leicester’s Cultural Quarter. With the ambition of providing a centre for experimental modes of arts production, exhibition and exchange, Two Queens is dedicated to establishing an agenda for new activity in the city and across the region.

We want to invest our energies into collaborations with new institutions and individuals from outside of Leicester whilst also assisting in the development of artists working within the city.

Two Queens was established in 2011 by recent graduates from De Montfort and Loughborough Universities, and has been programming regular exhibitions and events since March 2012.

Two Queens is a not-for profit company limited by guarantee.

Q. Can I have an exhibition at Two Queens?

A. We don’t discourage proposal submissions, however our current exhibition programme consists of shows that have been put together through a process of curatorial research. Submissions will be read but you may not receive a response. The best way to show your work at Two Queens is by joining our membership programme, more details of which can be found at this page. 

Q. Do you hire out your gallery space?

We do on occasion hire out our gallery space for events, but not for exhibitions. This is because we do not have room in our current programme to allow for more shows. For more details of event hire rates please email info@2queens.com
