Promoting Creative Exchange.
Gallery No.32 is an artist-led outdoor gallery and project space built in the summer of 2020. We provide a safe space for artists to show their work for free. Encouraging participatory and site-specific exhibitions and community events. Artists can exhibit their work horizontally in an anti-elitist environment, bringing art to the day-to-day public eye.
Gallery No.32 was born in June 2020, during the first national lockdown in the UK in response to 3 pressing factors;
- The closure of galleries meaning there was no art to see, less art to make and less creativity to feed minds.
- The lack of financially viable opportunity for emerging artists.
- The hierarchic system of exchange within the art world.
Megan Stuart, Co-Director and Developer of Gallery No.32: ‘We are DIY artists creating our own opportunities, not waiting for the system to answer them; it’s getting much busier as DIY is becoming more of a necessity. The response we have had so far to the gallery is direct proof of this and it's incredibly exciting.’
Kieran Idle, Co-Director and Developer of Gallery No.32:
‘Why start small? Small can be the risktakers – there’s less limitation, less constriction and more scope to explore and experiment. Small gets in the gaps. “Big trips over small”’.
