The market road gallery was launched in 2017. We believe it was the UK’s first bookable public art gallery. It’s a 65 foot long wall located on the back of the Attic Self Storage facility in Kings Cross, just on the junction of Market Road and York Way. A partnership between Central Saint Martins and Attic Self Storage, it offers artists a means to book a space to create their own individual, large-scale piece of art for public display.
The aim is for this to be an evolving space with a continuous rotation of images and artworks created by local artists. So far we have seen an inspiring range of imagery from the bright and bold to more thought provoking pieces.
Each space on the market road gallery is bookable on a rotational basis and the public can also vote and leave comments on individual pieces directly on the website.
If you would like the chance to create a piece of art on a section of the wall yourself then visit the market road gallery website for a link to download the booking app. Or perhaps you know someone whose work should be displayed here – mention it to them or send them the link.
By its very nature, the market road gallery wall is open to the public and can be viewed from Market Road. If you’re local then pop by and have a look at the latest pieces on show. Find our more here and drop us a line with your comments and feedback – we’d love to hear what you think!
The Attic Self Storage facility is located on the other side of the wall – you can pop in and view our facilities any time you like too! Find your nearest store here or enter your postcode to get a price.
