Comprising over 125 works from 40 artists and artist groups, the exhibition encompasses photography, sculpture, video and works on paper and includes early examples of 'copy art' and 'mail art'.

Highlights include Mel Bochner's 'Working Drawings' and 'Other Visible Things on Paper Not Necessarily Meant to be Viewed As Art', as well as works by Barbara T Smith made using a hired Xerox 914.

Xerox UK managing director Darren Cassidy said: "Xerography has always been about pushing the boundaries of innovation and this exhibition is a visual embodiment of that very idea.

"It’s astounding to see the inspiration that has been born out of this invention. With 23 new patents awarded every week we’re certain that the next 75 years will lead to as many creative developments as the last 75."

The exhibition is open to the public until 10 November.
