About Us

 

Cubitt is an artist-led gallery, education and studio provider based in Islington. We are an independent organisation managed by our members: a community of over 30 artists dedicated to nurturing and supporting emerging practice in the visual arts. Over twenty-five years we have grown as unique hub for international developments in contemporary visual culture; as an Arts Council England’s National Portfolio Organisation, we provide essential opportunities for artists, curators and educators to expand their practice critically at an early stage in their careers, whilst connecting to our local community and a broad variety of audiences through meaningful and responsive engagement. With the creative freedom and community of the studio at its heart, Cubitt is a multi-layered; richly resourced yet incredibly cost-effective; democratic beacon for outstanding art.
