Pavement Gallery originally opened in 2009 and ran until 2013. After a hiatus, it returned with a new programme in 2020. The gallery is a 24/7 window space based on the corner of the Righton Building facing All Saints Park and Oxford Road. It delivers an ambitious exhibition programme of international contemporary art, alongside strands of other curatorial activity online and offline. Set in a former drapery store, the space - which cannot be entered by the public - provides a highly visible stage for the display of contemporary art.
Pavement is ran by a rolling group of Associates. The Associate model to provides those involved with the opportunity to develop practical skills in programming and exhibition making. It also ensures an equal division of work and democratic decision making within the group. The model allows for an overlap and handover, with new Associates having the opportunity to learn from the most experienced members of the team.
