WORKPLACE is a contemporary art gallery based in Gateshead in the North of England. 





Initially developing out of the artist-led scene in the North of England, Workplace was founded by Paul Moss, Richard Forster and Miles Thurlow in 2002. 


After the departure of Forster in 2004, Moss and Thurlow opened their first gallery 'Workplace Gallery' at 34 Ellison Street within the Brutalist Trinity Square development (designed by Rodney Gordon for Owen Luder Partnerships in 1967) known locally as the 'Get Carter Carpark' due to its prominent role in the 1971 cult movie starring Micheal Caine.

Workplace relocated to The Old Post House, Gateshead in 2007, due to the demolition of the Trinity Square complex by Gateshead Council. 


From its Gateshead base the gallery rapidly became the leading commercial contemporary art gallery located outside of London in England, regularly taking part in major international art fairs, and placing its artists in collections and exhibitions worldwide.


In February 2019, Paul Moss very sadly died due to complications arising from Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrome. You can read some of the tributes to Paul here


WORKPLACE continues to be led under the direction of Miles Thurlow
