There are several places where you can see X-ray art. This includes on the artist’s websites, in commercial buildings across the world, in permanent museums and in temporary exhibitions if different galleries.
The best place to see X-ray art is in Process Gallery in Kent, UK.
Process Gallery in Kent
The Process Gallery in Kent is the brainchild of Nick Veasey. Nick Veasey is one of the worlds leading X-ray artist, and he has poured his heart into creating a museum where people can see unedited X-ray art as well as other types of contemporary art. Nick Veasey is the owner of the museum and works out of a workshop in the museum. The museum provides a very genuine experience since it is owned and operated by the artist behind much of the art. The museum is open 7 days a week and admission is free. I highly recommend a visit if you find yourself in the UK.
Kakadu National Park
The Kakadu National Park is a protected area within the Alligator Rivers Region of the Northern Territory. With its 19.8 square kilometers, the park is roughly the same size as the European country Slovenia.
The park features a lot of aboriginal art that has many similarities with X-ray art. The art is painted, not made with an X-ray machine but it shares the desire to show what lies beneath. The art shows the skeletons of animals.
Below I am going to list some museums that have featured X-ray art exhibitions in the past, and that might do so again in the future.
The Hugh Turvey exhibition X-POSÉ: Material and Surface was shown at Gallery@Oxo in 2014. They also hosted an exhibition of Turves work in 2009.
Artopia Gallery also featured the exhibition X-POSÉ: Material and Surface in 2014.
Edinburgh Science Festival
Edinburgh Science Festival featured an Exhibition of X-ray art in 2014.
X-ray art in public and commercial spaces
Below I am going to list some public and commercial spaces that are open to the public where you can see X-ray art. This list is not complete and is to a large degree dependant on readers who write to us and tell us where they have seen X-ray art prominently featured.
We can not guarantee that all information below is correct. The art might have been removed since we added it to this list. Do not hesitate to contact us if you visit any of the places below and find out that they no longer feature X-ray art. We want tohe information below to be correct.
Places where you can see X-ray art:
- Waitrose: Chef Heston Blumenthal’s product range “Heston from Waitrose” feature X.ray art on the packaging.
- Maslow Hotel in Johannesburg: Maslow Hotel in Johannesburg features art by the X-ray artist Hugh Turvey
- British Institute of Radiology (BIR). The BIR features x-ray art.
- Casino Del Rey in San Jose, Costa Rica. The hotel features prints from a number of X-ray artists including Nick Veasey. The art hangs randomly in the corridors of the hotel and is sometimes featured in the casino. Most of the art is in sections of the hotel that is restricted to paying guest. The hotel and casino is adult only and it is not recommended to anyone who is easily offended by sin and adult behavior. I recommend that you learn how to play casino games before you visit the hotel and casino. If you do not want to gamble at all then this hotel is not for you.
