Edinburgh’s Fruitmarket Gallery has announced its plans for reopening next year, following its £3.75m refurbishment, and its inaugural programme, which includes a major presentation of work by Glasgow sculptor Karla Black. The Gallery expansion, reported by, is due to be complete by early Spring 2021, with an expected public opening date of 21st April 2021. Karla Black, a Turner Prize nominee, will present a ‘reimagined retrospective’ – a selection of existing sculptures and new work, in a dynamic interplay with the Gallery’s new and refurbished gallery spaces. These spaces will bring the gallery’s next door building, also a former fruit and vegetable warehouse, into use as an expansive, inspirational arts space. This will allow the Fruitmarket to realise its ambitions of delivering a year-round multi-arts programme, by hosting a year-round performance, dance, live literature programme, and a range of multi-artform events, making it Scotland’s newest centre for contemporary culture.
