Pavement is an exhibition space situated on a corner site, part of a listed building which was formerly a drapery store. The window space, which cannot be entered by the public, provides a highly visible stage for the display of international contemporary art.
One of the key strengths of the gallery is its position. It is very much a ‘public’ space, with no real threshold between the work and its everyday surroundings. The work on show can be seen 24 hours a day, encouraging engagement on a variety of levels and contexts.
Pavement Gallery opened in 2009, and returned in July 2019 after a hiatus of 6 years. Previous exhibitions include—
Marita Fraser, Matthew Higgs, Emilie Pitoiset and Chu YunSee details
