The Castle has acquired works by Oreet Ashery, Joe Moran, Broomber and Chanarin, Eva Rothschild, Francesco Pedraglio and Patrick Coyle.

Dr Rosy Gray, Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery curator, said: 'We have acquired the most incredible acquisitions for our contemporary art collection across a range of media including print, sculpture and performance.

'The opportunity to share work of such calibre with our audiences is a wonderful legacy for this exceptional project.'

The pieces have been supplied by Fig-Futures which organised 16 week-long shows featuring work by 18 artists in galleries around the country.
