Established in 1994, in London, Gasworks is a contemporary visual art organisation offering studios for local artists and with a programme of artists' residencies, exhibitions, events and educational activities.
Housing under one roof the various aspects of contemporary art practice - conception, production, dissemination and debate - Gasworks aims to support the professional development of UK and international artists either at early stages of their career or when needing time to experiment with innovative ideas, methods and media.
Gasworks addresses the need of artists to make new work in a context that instigates dialogue and exchange of ideas through open-ended and process-based residencies, and through commissions that involve long-term engagement and discussion between coordinators, curators and artists. Within the multitude of cultural activities in London, Gasworks aims to consolidate its unique role as a space where international and local art practices meet to produce and display new and challenging views of contemporary art that are presented to the UK audience through its public programme of exhibitions, seminars and open studios. A more targeted and interactive programme is offered to Gasworks' local communities through specifically designed educational and outreach activities.
