Visit our galleries and explore the amazing work of the next generation of contemporary artists.
The MAC is fortunate to be located beside the Belfast School of Art and benefits immensely from the ongoing engagement we have with both staff and students.
As a near neighbour, we are aware of the devastating effect that COVID-19 has had on the BA and MFA Fine Art Class of 2020 with the cancellation of the final year shows. We are delighted to have, for our first reopening exhibition, a selection of work from the graduate class of 2020, which would have formed part of their final year show, exhibited across our three galleries.
Entrance to the exhibition is free, although donations are appreciated at this difficult time.

These are listed as 30 min slots, and you can arrive at the MAC anytime within that 30min time slot. Next, tell us how many will be attending – our exhibitions are free to visit, but you can choose to add a donation to your booking. At this difficult time, we are more grateful than ever for those who give financially towards our work – your donations truly make a difference.
To complete your booking, we’ll ask you for some personal details including a contact telephone number for Track and Trace purposes. Once your booking is confirmed, we will send you a confirmation email, and the day before your visit, we’ll also send an email with some helpful information for your visit.
