WORKPLACE was founded by 
    Miles Thurlow and Paul Moss in 2002.

    Emerging out of post industrial Gateshead in the Northeast of England in the early 2000’s, WORKPLACE seeks to address the exclusion and isolation encountered by artists living and working in an economically challenged region of the UK, engaging fully with the local context whilst simultaneously building meaningful connections to the international art world at its highest level.    



    WORKPLACE Gallery is a commercial contemporary art gallery founded in Gateshead in the North of England in 2005 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 vigorously over the past decade to access the international artworld. 


    With the objective of working with artists to achieve critical acclaim, Workplace Gallery 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. Workplace Gallery has forged meaningful connections to a new generation of artists, collectors and curators worldwide.

    Workplace Foundation is a Charitable Foundation that promotes Contemporary Art for public benefit and supports under-represented and emerging Contemporary art practice through a rigorous and engaging programme of exhibitions and events.                                                                                                                 


    The Foundation aims to enrich the cultural life of the North of England by creating opportunities for the public to engage with art of exceptional quality, and to create a much larger audience for art through the Foundation’s local and international networks. 

    Workplace Foundation serves the communities of Gateshead and the North of England and aims to contribute to the regional art scene, and establish the area as a vital cultural centre within the UK.
