Cubitt is an artist-led gallery, studios and education provider based in Islington. It is an independent organisation run on a co-operative model managed by its members, comprising a community of over 30 artists and a team of professional staff. Over the past twenty five years Cubitt has grown as a unique hub for international developments in contemporary visual culture, providing opportunities for artists and curators at an early stage in their careers, as well as members of the local community. As one of the last remaining, affordable artists' studio spaces in central London, Cubitt is a multi-layered, richly resourced yet incredibly cost-effective, democratic reality.
The documentary Cubitt 25 Years: An Artist Led History has been realised with support from Outset Contemporary Art Fund and the dedication of Cubitt artists and staff.
