South Asia Gallery

Manchester Museum (as part of University of Manchester)

We are delighted to announce that Studio C102 in collaboration with Mobile Studio Architects have won a competition to design the new permanent South Asia Gallery for Manchester Museum.

The South Asia Gallery will be the UK’s first permanent gallery to explore the stories, experiences and contributions of South Asian diaspora communities. A place for emotional connections and new perspectives, it will bring together world-class collections and lived experiences in a landmark partnership with the British Museum and co-curated with the local community (South Asia Gallery Collective and Our Shared Cultural Heritage Manchester). 

The gallery is a keystone of ‘hello future’, an exciting new project to transform and develop Manchester Museum which will open in Autumn 2022.
