WORKPLACE is a contemporary art gallery founded in Gateshead in the North of England in 2002, and with a gallery in Mayfair, London since 2013. Originally situated far from any of the UK’s major cultural centres, the Gallery has worked intensely over the past decade to access the international artworld.
With the objective of working with artists to achieve critical acclaim, WORKPLACE has become an important and integral part of the UK’s cultural landscape through a respected programme of exhibitions, taking part in the leading international art fairs, and long-term partnerships with highly esteemed international artists and galleries. Growing out of an artist-led Northern English art scene, WORKPLACE aims to combine a progressive, countercultural spirit with an independent D.I.Y. attitude, connecting to a new generation of artists, collectors and curators worldwide.
Workplace Gateshead opened in 2005 at 34 Ellison Street, Gateshead - part of Trinity Square Shopping Centre particularly noted for its iconic Brutalist car park which featured as a key location in the 1971 cult british gangster film 'Get Carter' starring Michael Caine. Since the complex was demolished in 2008, Workplace Gateshead has been located at The Old Post Office in Gateshead - a 19th Century Grade 2 listed building built upon the site of the important 18th century British artist, engraver, and naturalist Thomas Bewick's studio and residence.
