Where to see X-ray art

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.

You can visit the museum’s webpage here, and you can read about current exhibitions here.

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.

Temporary exhibitions

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.
