ethos

market is an artist led and run contemporary art project based in the east end of glasgow. market aims to support and foster innovative arts from the new and emergent to established, local and international to engage in fresh approaches to the exchange of ideas and experiences between audience and artist.
market aims to platform a challenging mix of projects in and out-with the venues, selected from ongoing submitted proposals by any individuals, plus pilot projects for potential annual inclusion, all with a range of artists talks/events, discussions and outreach. All projects will aim to encourage the artist/s involved to address the relevance and implications of their art to the venue, location and diverse audience.

location

market occupies three commercial shop units; two are project spaces (the east ends only arts venues) and an artists studio/residency space, all on duke street in dennistoun, glasgow.
