The Fruitmarket Gallery aims to make art accessible without compromising art or underestimating audiences. It presents world-class, thought-provoking, and challenging exhibitions of modern and contemporary art made by both Scottish and international artists, in an environment that is welcoming, engaging, informative, and always free. The gallery’s creative program includes exhibitions, commissions, interpretation, education, and publishing in both print and electronic forms.
The gallery aims to give audiences the confidence both to enjoy art and to understand the importance of art, artists, culture, and creativity, and their impact on individual and collective lives. A layered approach to education and interpretation for each exhibition allows visitors to access as little or as much information as they need or choose.
