ArtLacuna is an artist-led space set up in May 2013 in an old coroner's office in Clapham Junction. It accommodates artist studios, project and exhibition space. ArtLacuna aims to open up dialogues across creative disciplines, providing a resource for local professional and student communities. The lacuna, or lexical gap, represents a gap in translation, a place where multiple meanings are applied, where meanings shift and new interpretations can be made.
ArtLacuna aims to provide a creative hub which closes the gap between disciplines and explores the creative process as experienced by artists, designers and makers. To this end, the project will provide working space for artists, project space for visiting artists, and forums for discussion and conversation. We believe that there is a gap where such cross disciplinary dialogues should be taking place, for the benefit of the creative industries, design community and fine artists alike.
As a collective we aim to provide space for collaborative and cross-disciplinary projects, and a place for unrepresented and emerging artists to realise and show work. We run a varied program of events, including a film festival, experimental talks events, artist discussion groups, reading groups, workshops and exhibitions. An occasional publication accompanies the findings of our artist research events.
The space has a wide shop frontage, flexible spaces, disabled access and a covered ArtYard for installations. We welcome proposals from artists, artist groups and others for research projects, talks events, installations and the like. If you have an innovative or experimental project you think we might be interested in contact us with details of your proposal, including your potential audience, what you hope to achieve and how it might be funded.
We have studio spaces to offer. We are looking for an artist to join our vibrant working community, with opportunities to create and be part of the event schedule at ArtLacuna. Rent includes working space with a desk in the studios, and access to the project/exhibition space.
Included is 2 weeks of project/exhibition space booked into our calendar to do with as you wish; this could be realising a project, exhibiting, curating an exhibition, organising a seminar or other event/s. In addition, you would have use of the project space when it is not otherwise booked on an ad hoc basis, negotiated with other users. You will also have access to ArtLacuna equipment, including tools and digital projector.
studio space available from £130 per month including rent, all bills + wifi. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information
