About

The Aberdeen Art Gallery is the primary visual art exhibition space in Aberdeen, Scotland. It was established in 1884 in a building designed by Alexander Marshall Mackenzie, and a sculpture field was added in 1905. In 1900, it received the art collection of local granite merchant Alexander Macdonald. The gallery is known for its collection of modern Scottish and international art, including Ken Currie, Gilbert and George, Ivor Abrahams, Bridget Riley, and Bruce McLean. 
In October 2020, the Aberdeen Art Gallery was nominated as one of the five winners of the 2020 ArtFund Museum of the Year Award. In response to the museum sector's challenges during the coronavirus pandemic, ArtFund increased the prize to £200,000 and changed the format of the award to five winners.
