Vision for 2015 – 2018


Where do we go from here?

mima has established itself as an institution to sit comfortably amongst the most prestigious galleries in the UK and beyond.

However, it sits in a context where the currency of the modern or contemporary art is in doubt. Furthermore, the world is now a more uncertain place since 2007 when mima was formed. Traditional forms of art and culture are under scrutiny as never before and the use value of art has slipped away from ordinary society.

In Middlesbrough, an industrial region that is perhaps most removed from the capital that has supported the visual arts, there is the opportunity to evolve a new kind of institution that leads the field in testing new approaches to making art work in society.
