Kettle’s Yard is the University of Cambridge’s modern and contemporary art gallery. Originally the home of curator Jim Ede and his wife Helen, the space now houses their permanent collection, "largely as he left it", including works by Ben and Winifred Nicholson, Joan Miró, Constantin Brancusi, Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth.

Kettle’s Yard was originally conceived with students in mind. In 1954 Jim Ede envisaged creating ‘a living place where works of art could be enjoyed… where young people could be at home unhampered by the greater austerity of the museum or public art gallery.’ Situated in a quiet corner of Cambridge, overlooking St Peter’s Church, Kettle's Yard is a domestic space acting as a stage for paintings, sculpture, ceramics, and furniture.
