outside of gallery

the gallery:

We had a dedicated exhibition space for showing cutting edge and innovative art.
We aimed to showcase the kind of work normally reserved for galleries in cities. By showing the work in the gallery, we aimed to engage local and visiting audiences in contemporary art that they previously may never have had the chance to experience.
The space itself was approximately 4 metres cubed. Small enough to exhibit specific projects or even individual works that would normally be swamped in larger spaces.
The gallery was fully accessible to wheelchair users.
