Ellie Pennick’s Guts Gallery Is Taking On Inequality In The Art World

Ben Perdue, Parade , 2 Mar 2021

Welcome to the experimental space dismantling established industry rules in the name of championing newer voices from the community.


Guts Gallery is the platform emerging artists deserve. Founded by Ellie Pennick in 2019, Guts tackles how young talent is being failed by the elitist art world and its broken business model head on. Central to this is giving the next generation the support they need to become self-sufficient, from redistributing funds more fairly amongst the community to being there for a chat on down days. And Pennick’s no-frills approach has taken the gallery from showing above a New Cross pub to headline-grabbing online exhibitions with a mix of new and established names, including Nan Goldin and Corbin Shaw.
