The Exchange is a major contemporary art space in the centre of Penzance that opened in 2007 in conjunction with renovations to Newlyn Art Gallery. Together the galleries present contemporary work in all media by regional, national and international artists, with a programme of events, activities and education.
Formerly the town’s telephone exchange, the huge space retains the original industrial feel of the building and features a large t-shaped gallery and a striking glass facade that runs the entire length of the building.
The Exchange is located off historic Chapel Street, within easy walking distance of the bus and train stations.
There is a well-stocked book and gift shop plus a café serving snacks and light lunches.
Well behaved dogs are welcome, but may not be allowed in the exhibition spaces during certain times.
