The Fruitmarket programmes exhibitions with the best Scottish and International artists and enriches these with a wide variety of cultural and educational events. We are committed to making contemporary art accessible without under-estimating audiences or compromising art or the ideas it enacts. We create a welcoming space for people to think with art in ways that are meaningful to them – for free.
Our exhibitions, publications and events aim to show thinking happening, to demonstrate that art is a creative, active and generous cultural force, to resonate with visitors and to create an enriching, challenging context for an audience’s own ideas.
We believe that engaging with art in this way is enjoyable, leads to an improved quality of life, and revitalises our understanding of ourselves as individuals and as part of society.
