This free to enter art gallery is housed in my favourite Birmingham building. It houses modern art with exhibitions changing regularly

Probably not a first to view in Birmingham but as it is close to Brindley place well worth popping in to see what exhibitions they have on . Excellent use of space and very interesting to see work of modern artists.

Just the two exhibition halls but really worth a visit. If you love modern art don't look anywhere further than the ikon. Perfect wonderful and really enjoyable
