The Fruitmarket Gallery has been a key part of Edinburgh’s cultural landscape since 1974. Currently closed for redevelopment, we are getting ready to open our doors to the public on 7 July.
Turner prize nominated artist Karla Black’s work will span both the exhibition galleries and the new warehouse space when we reopen. The Fruitmarket curated Black’s solo presentation for Scotland in Venice at the 54th International Biennale in 2011 but has yet to work with her in Scotland and this exhibition is the result of an invitation to Black to play to her strengths and “force a raw creative moment” into the Fruitmarket’s pristine new gallery spaces.
We can’t wait to welcome you back to the Fruitmarket in July!
