Other Space Art Gallery

The other-space is a contemporary art gallery curated and run by the other-art network. The gallery is contained in a newly renovated Victorian stable in the grounds of Goodnestone Park Gardens.

The other-art network commissions and produces contemporary art, supporting international and UK-based artists to pursue new directions and make work with the express intention of challenging traditional delineations of discipline and media in the arts.

Open during Garden opening hours.
