The World As We Know It
SKIP Gallery is an international, collaborative, multi-disciplinary public art project dedicated to creating much needed space, opportunities, funding and advocacy for emerging artists. We are devoted to creating and curating art that meets people at ‘eye level’ and inspires discourse in the public realm, beyond the standard galleries, museums and funded institutions.
Fandangoe SKIP *on Tour*
New York Edition
Following on from our London residencies at Canary Wharf and Greenwich Peninsula, we are delighted to announce that Fandango SKIP, in collaboration with Fandangoe Kid, Caukin Studio and The Loss Project is going on tour to New York. The candy-coloured, ice-cream-kiosk-in-a-skip will appear in Brookfield Place, New York October 6th-11th and there will be free mental health workshops, as well as free scoops of Fandangoe flavoured ice cream served up by ‘Blue Marble'.
SKIP Gallery X Cool Shit
THE DROP – a major new art installation full of colour, humour and play – marked the inaugural collaboration between SKIP Gallery and artist collective Cool Shit. Springing up as a spectacular public ‘moment’ in Hoxton Square, London, the colossal 5m high inflatable pop-up, in a mammoth 12-yard skip, saw the introduction of a new character to the Cool Shit roster: Mr. Cool, a figure loosely based on the mythical Caganer – a bare-bottomed little chap who is a regular feature in the nativity scenes in Catalunya.
SKIP Gallery X Caukin Studio X Self Space
A SKIP Gallery production, conceived and built by architecture practice CAUKIN Studio, alongside therapy service Self Space.
The Feelings Library is an art installation aimed at bringing awareness to mental health issues and tackling loneliness this Christmas.
Step inside and discover a new way to open up about how you're feeling and find comfort in connecting with others.

LOOK AT THIS
Like Wood’s contribution to the 2017 Folkestone Triennial, Upgrade used the form of a graphic three-dimensional caricature of a house to bring a fresh perspective to its urban location.
With his hyper real Trompe L'oeil packet of crisps seemingly dumped in a skip, Gavin Turk's Transubstantiation provided viewers with a comical expression of the Skip Gallery ethos; a humorous commentary on consumerism that was launched in Hoxton Square on Thursday 16th November. Known for his subversive sculptural works that question artistic identity and authorship, Turk brought his classic style to the pop up gallery, questioning the very nature of a skip as a place to dispose of rubbish, and our relationship to what we choose to throw away.
NOTHING TO WEAR AGAIN
