Seeking expressions of interest in subsidised project spaces at London's latest arts infrastructure.
Enclave is an ambitious new-build street of 10 gallery-spec single units that launched in June 2012. Hosting national and international project spaces, galleries and residencies, Enclave forms a major part of a new masterplan for Deptford, South London and a major new addition to the art scene locally.
We are pleased to announce an opportunity for new and established international project spaces and collectives to join us at the site, to take a long-term space rented at significantly below market rates. This can include 5 weeks free yearly use of an impressive 8 x 8m gallery as an additional and professional exhibition, performance, residency and events venue. Tenants benefit from the group momentum of mailing lists, shared PV events, established local partners and links, web portals and some technical/AV support.
Enclave launched with a month-long exhibition across all ten spaces by invited curators including David Thorp and LUX, and artists residencies including Adam Christensen, Toby Huddlestone and Conal McStravick. This will be followed by a series of symposia and solo shows and independeent curatorial programmes for 2013/14.
We are seeking submissions for the last two remaining gallery units that are highly finished, double height, heated, ground floor spaces with glazed frontages and with full disabled access, offering a unique opportunity for start ups and experimental projects to establish a base in one of London’s most creative and up and coming hubs. Guide price £450/m inc.
