Cubitt Gallery is committed to showcasing emerging international contemporary visual arts practice. We aim to test models of curating; to take risks and challenge public and professional perceptions of what constitutes contemporary visual culture; to foreground the role and responsibilities of curatorial practice and to stimulate and encourage high-quality critical debate. Through a unique Curatorial Fellowship programme, Cubitt supports the development and vision of emerging curators and the work of young or underexposed artists.
The first Cubitt exhibitions were organised by studio holderst whose ambition was to show work by their peers amid a conservative London gallery scene. As artists took on the role of curator, the Gallery established itself early on as an alternative to the institutional system and a place where dominant curatorial practices were challenged. In the mid-nineties Cubitt began to invite outside curators to organise exhibitions. Since 2001, with Arts Council England funding, Cubitt has pioneered a highly successful bursary scheme model for emerging curators, renamed Cubitt Curatorial Fellowship in 2015. Bursary holders programme exhibitions at Cubitt over an 18-month period with total artistic freedom, nurtured by and in conversation with the Gallery Committee and Gallery Projects and Development Manager.
