The Fruitmarket Gallery is temporarily closed until further notice. Please check the venue's website for the latest details.

Housed on the site of a former fruit and vegetable market, the Fruitmarket Gallery programmes exhibitions showcasing Scottish and international contemporary artists.

The Fruitmarket Gallery is currenly closed for refurbishment and will reopen later in 2020. During this time the Fruitmarket will be working with artists out in the community and offsite.

The Fruitmarket's programme, publications and events all aim to ‘show thinking happening’ and ‘to demonstrate that art is a creative, active and generous cultural force’.

Originally opened in 1974, under the direction of Fiona Bradley since 2003 the gallery has presented solo exhibitions by artists including Louise Bourgeois, Martin Creed, Gabriel Orozco and Dieter Roth, and created opportunities for artists including Callum Innes and Lucy Skaer to develop their practice in Scotland. The Fruitmarket also curated the Scottish pavilion at the Venice Biennale in 2011, presenting work by Karla Black.

As well as gallery spaces, the Fruitmarket offers a carefully curated shop including books, artist editions and gifts, and a cafe.
