Fruitmarket is 50 this year. Our online archive dates back to the first exhibition in 1974 and includes exhibition details, installation images, downloadable documents, videos, and links to places where you can find out more information. We are digitising and adding information all the time to enrich this historical repository.

During our 50th year, we are striving to find out as much as possible about our exhibition history. You will see that we know very little about some of the early exhibitions at Fruitmarket. Maybe you can help? Do you have stories and materials to share? We can digitise any materials you might have (catalogues, photographs, slides, press cuttings, preview cards, exhibition guides, bulletins). You are part of the history of Fruitmarket. We would love to hear from you.

Archive room and Library

In our archive room we hold archival materials that date from 1984 onwards. This includes curatorial notes, press releases, press cuttings, leaflets, posters, slides, photographs and so on. Our ongoing cataloguing process means we are constantly discovering things. We welcome researchers to be part of this process of discovery.

We also have a small curatorial library available by appointment. Visit our library catalogue to browse our holdings.

If you have any specific questions about past exhibitions or would like to make an appointment to explore materials in the Archive room, please contact our Research and Public Engagement Curator, Please read our guidelines in advance of your visit.
