"Founder of Guts Gallery, Ellie Pennick is one of the youngest gallerists navigating the art world today. She is a queer working-class female artist from North Yorkshire. Ellie experienced first-hand inequality within the art system, but instead of folding herself into this structure, it spurred her on to create a business venture that benefits other struggling artists like herself. Many figures and institutions are scared to speak out about inequality in the art world, often in fear of their own precarious positions being compromised. Guts Gallery refuses to be silenced and is one of the most exciting things happening in art globally today."
