Southside Gallery

Set in the heart of a vibrant community of emerging artists, Southside Gallery (formerly Fridge Gallery) has been committed to showing diverse and challenging work since its inception, and has recently crystallised a longstanding dedication into a more muscular and focused agenda for the future. Taking the idea of generosity as its impetus, forthcoming exhibitions will facilitate unique opportunities for early career artists to show alongside established names. The programme, curated by Gregor Johnstone, will also be shaped by the involvement of John Calcutt and Alexander Kennedy as external advisors. Exhibitions will exist alongside a screening programme in the purpose-built cinema space, with new video works shown in addition to films presented by selected artists as a way of engaging audiences with the research that informs their output.
