Exhibition archive 

Since the Jam Factory opened its doors as an art venue in November 2006, we have had the opportunity to host hundreds of exhibitions.  Our visual arts program highlights the importance of contemporary painting, photography,  architecture and numerous other fields that make the Art culture in Oxford so important.

This archive allows you to look back at some of the outstanding exhibitions we have held over the years. The archive is continuously evolving and being updated.  There may be gaps in the catalogue and we are working hard to keep things up to date.
