Scaffold Gallery is a gallery institution without a gallery building. We produce unique pop-up exhibitions in a variety of places, showing and promoting early career artists.

On this website you can keep updated with everything Scaffold Gallery is currently doing, and has done previously via the Projects drop down menu. 

All photos from our past exhibitions can be found here, and if you want to see more from any of the talented artists we have worked, with you can find their details on the Associated Artists  page.
