Championed Artists

Guts Gallery was founded to ensure that those from underrepresented backgrounds could have their own voices heard, instead of being spoken for by those already in power. With that in mind, Guts refuses to “represent” its artists; we have no intention of “speaking for (somebody),” especially when our own backgrounds don’t give us insight into their personal experiences, and they have powerful, clear voices to speak for themselves.


Instead, Guts “champions” its artists, providing a safe space for opportunity, advice, and support through “vigorous support and defence of their cause.” When trying to be a force for change, we must all ask ourselves, do you want uphold traditional views or models, or join in change? We are firm believers that artists should be at the center of the art world, not gallerists, and this is a first step in changing that status quo.
