The Market Road Gallery pilot launched in summer 2017.
It is the UK’s first (we think) bookable public gallery, which gives you the chance to book to make artworks on sections of a 65m wall in central London.
It is part of a wider series of pilots to see how more people can have voice through artwork, and through saying what they like to see more of as well as what they like to see less of.
Everyone is invited.
We are learning as we go – get involved and be critical as well as creative.
What if more positive feedback means work stays longer and negative feedback means work is replaced sooner?
The gallery is located in London N7 – on the back of the Attic Self Storage’s Kings Cross building, by the sports pitches where York Road meets Market Road.
How does it work?
– Download the web-app from www.marketroadgallery.org to book from your phone, or else from a computer.
– Choose if you want to paint on the wall, submit feedback about works already underway or make other suggestions for the gallery.
– To paint, go to ‘Let Me Paint’ to choose available wall section(s) and dates to make your work. Access is via Better Leisure Football Pitches reception on Market Road – just let them know when you get there. Take your reservation with you.
– To feedback or submit ideas, go to Let Me Speak. Choose what you want to feed back on and rate artworks or submit your suggestions.
Be part of this live pilot and help experiment with how best to create and curate this space!
