ESCALA TEACHING AND RESEARCH SPACE


The majority of ESCALA’s holdings are located in our innovative Teaching and Research Space, located in the Constable Building next to Wivenhoe House, now a four-star hotel. The painting of the house by John Constable is in the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C.

Our Teaching and Research Space is used by staff and students from across the University, as well as by researchers from other universities. It is also accessible to members of the public by appointment.

Opening times

During University term time, it is possible to arrange to visit the ESCALA Teaching and Research Space on Wednesdays 1-4pm. Just email escala@essex.ac.uk. Maximum group size 12.

You can find answers to some frequently asked questions about accessing our space here.

Please note that we offer a range of ways to access ESCALA and endeavour to make as many of our artworks as accessible as possible. Where we are unable to make an artwork available, it is for a good reason, such as its condition, the fact that it is on loan or its size.
