Announcing our new temporary exhibition space in East London

Workplace is pleased to announce the inauguration of a new temporary space in Haggerston, East London. The 1,700 sq. ft ground floor gallery overlooking London’s famous Regent’s Canal will launch this May and run through to the end of the year. The new exhibition space joins Workplace’s other locations in Marylebone and Newcastle and will complement the program by hosting a series of group and solo exhibitions by the artists on the roster as well as international artists showing with the gallery for the first time. 

 

“Opening a new outpost outside of the traditional West End gallery district allows us to bring our program to a different audience within a new community of artists and collectors, whilst also providing space to present the projects that we have been developing for the past year but have had to postpone due to the various lockdowns.” Miles Thurlow, Co-Founder of Workplace. 

 

The new location, a renowned creative hub in the city and home to many artist studios, is a perfect fit for Workplace, which developed out of the artist-led scene in the North East of England and established its first space in Gateshead, away from any of the country’s obvious commercial gallery hotspots.

 

The new space will open its doors on Saturday 15th of May with the group show Interludes, including new works by Louise Giovanelli, Olivia Jia, Johnny Izatt-Lowry, Ciarán Murphy, Isabel Nolan, Olivia Sterling and Miko Veldkamp. The exhibition brings together a group of artists whose figurative paintings share a similar pictorial sensibility and whose subjects, containing isolated objects or cropped figures, suggest layered, hidden and non-linear narratives.

 

Visit: In order to protect the health and safety of our staff and visitors, we have put new measurements in place . All visitors will be required to wear a mask; hand sanitizer and disposable mask will be provided on site.
