We are currently working on our archive

We are currently working on an online version of our archive which will include exhibition details, installation images, downloadable documents, videos, and links to places where you can find out more information. In the meantime, a list of our exhibition history from 1974 to the present day is available here.

Archive room and Library

For the first time we have a dedicated room which allows us to hold some of our physical archival materials onsite and offer space for studying them. These materials are by no means a complete record of our exhibition history, and they have survived damp, fire and periods of institutional neglect. While the Fruitmarket was founded in 1974, the materials we hold date from the beginning of the directorship of Mark Francis in 1984. They include curatorial notes, press releases, press cuttings, leaflets, posters, slides, photographs and so on. Our ongoing cataloguing and reboxing 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 explore our archival holdings and library in our new Archive room, please contact our Research and Public Engagement Curator, Ruth Bretherick: ruth@fruitmarket.co.uk.
