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.

Since 2001 Cubitt offers an 18-month Curatorial Fellowship, which has been funded by Outset since 2010. Its aim is to support emerging curators and offer a platform for research and developing their curatorial practice.
