The Market Road Gallery pilot launched on 17th June 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.
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.
So how does it work?
– Download the web-app from www.marketroadgallery.org to book from your phone, or access from your computer.
– 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.
We are learning as we go so be critical as well as creative.
What if more positive feedback means work stays longer and negative feedback means work is replaced sooner?
Be part of this live pilot and help experiment with how best to create and curate this space!
