The Fruitmarket Gallery brings to Scotland some of the most inspiring contemporary art in the world.
Located in the heart of Edinburgh, the Gallery works with the very best Scottish artists as well as those from around the world, to exhibit, tour and commission the best of international practice and is widely recognised as one of the most important and exciting art institutions in the world.
We recognise that art can change lives and we offer an intimate encounter with art for free. We originate and premier projects, exhibitions, commissions and publications that generate new and exciting ways for audiences across Scotland to get closer to art.
The Gallery welcomes over 160,000 visitors and engages more than 3,000 people in our learning programmes each year. Whether that’s listening to an artist talk about their work or rolling up your sleeves in an artist-led workshop, we help audiences make sense of what they see.
Whilst we are proud to be supported by Creative Scotland for 50% of our running costs, it does mean that we are reliant upon the support and generosity of individuals, businesses, trusts and foundations to ensure the Gallery remains ambitious, welcoming and free for everybody to enjoy.
