About Plinth

Plinth is a contemporary art platform that unites established and emerging artists on one pedestal. Whether celebrated on a local or a global stage, our mission is to bring the work of outstanding artists to wider audiences through stories, exhibitions and beautiful objects.

From Turner Prize-winners to Magnum Photographers, collaborating with artists is at the heart of what we do, and we have published limited editions, specially-designed homeware, clothing and multiples by Michael Craig-Martin, Cornelia Parker, Ding Yi, David Shrigley, Julian Opie, Beatriz Milhazes and many more.

Our magazine captures the energy and depth of London’s cultural scene, while our projects help to shape it – all in the firm belief that contemporary art should be accessible for curious minds the world-over, and an integral part of everyday life.
