Invisible

Invisible

about: 

Through its partnership with The People’s Kitchen, the System Gallery will hand-out disposable cameras to people living in Newcastle without homes. Throughout 2017, the participants of the project are encouraged to use the cameras to document their lives and capture everyday moments. A selection of these photographs will then be developed, printed and framed to form an exhibition to be held at the System Gallery in late 2017, this exhibition will then travel throughout several venues in Newcastle.

The aim of INVISIBLE is to help people affected by homelessness to reconnect with the wider society through photography. INVISIBLE seeks to make their lives visible, only shown from their own point of view.

SCHNEEEULE

schneeeule silke nowak

about: 

Schneeeule is a project space based in Berlin and run by Matti Bergmann and Silke Nowak. Founded in 2012, Schneeeule is a space for exhibitions, screenings and lectures with varying locations.

The venue for the first couple events was a salesroom in the Berlin Carré, located at Alexanderplatz in Berlin-Mitte. Ever since various venues were used for the following events – such as a garden, a bar or a cultural center.

In order to meet a large scope of different approaches towards exhibition making, Schneeeule is dedicated to collaboration, and thus invites different artists as well as curators.

Another objective of Schneeeule is to present concealed positions, especially female artists, by making them visible and give them space for a public debate. Showing Verena Pfisterer’s work for instance, led to an increased attention of her artistic position within the contemporary art context. Further exhibitions and screenings featured paintings, drawings and films by Verena Schirz-Jahn, Coleen Fitzgibbon and Annabel Nicolson.

Centrum

about: 

Centrum is a contemporary art space in the Flughafenkiez district of Neukölln, Berlin. Formerly used as a retail store and brothel, Centrum’s exhibition space is not a pure white cube, but owes its specific character to its tiled floor composed of red ceramic and gray stone tiles, and from the large shop window looking out into the street. Artists have in the past on several occasions produced works and installations that were inspired by these characteristics and by the history of the space.
Centrum since 2009 has collaborated with various artists and has developed a series of experimental projects, including a festival of video installations and film screenings, and performances. Some projects were shown outside the exhibition space and in collaboration with other artist-run initiatives.
Centrum offers a platform for the discourses in and around contemporary art as well as the opportunity to meet other artists through artist talks, lectures, and film screenings.

history of the site: 

Situated in the so-called 'Flughafenkiez' (airport neighbourhood), in walking distance to Berlin's former airport Tempelhofer Feld, the space was formerly used as a dog shelter, café, and finally, until 2009, as a bar and brothel. In 2009 the space was refurbished and a large shop window towards the street was installed by Centrum's founding directors, Kate Squires and David Moynihan, before the exhibition space officially opened in 2010.

Drop City

about: 

Drop City is a gallery established in Newcastle upon Tyne in Autumn 2014.
The original space has been redeveloped and Drop City now operates nomadically, between Newcastle & Dusseldorf.

Developing a model that capitalises on the varied experiences of its founders; an independent curator and three artists, Drop City’s programme explores the gaps and potential plasticity between several models of exhibition space and gallery, revolving around the individual work of each founding member. Through an inclusive collaborative structure, Drop City aims to build an exhibition context that is driven by our engagement and dialogue with other artists. Single works, solo and collaborative exhibitions and live activities all feature, as well as publications and international co-operations. To date Drop City has presented guest exhibitions in the European cities of Wien and Brussels.

Drop City represents and supports contemporary artists and is committed to the production, presentation, mediation, and support of their work, promoting workable exchanges between UK based artists and art organisations and those working internationally.

Since vacating the South Street space, Drop City have become a nomadic space, organising shows locally, nationally and internationally in Vienna, Brussels and Dusseldorf. Sam & Ellie, two of the Drop City founders relocated to Dusseldorf early in 2016 from where Drop City have been organising and curating shows in the Hotel Ufer. Forthcoming exhibitions include the second half of a gallery exchange with MAUVE, an artist led space in Vienna.

history of the site: 

In 1823 George and Robert Stephenson, along with three partners, opened the world’s first purpose built locomotive works on Forth Banks, Newcastle upon Tyne. Robert, at the age of 19, was the Managing Partner.

The famous locomotives “Locomotion” and “Rocket” were built here and the works subsequently exported locomotives to developing railways all over the world - often the first to be seen in those countries.

The Penthouse

about: 

An independent not for profit artist led work and project space in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. A place for making, doing and sharing by artists Rosanne Robertson and Debbie Sharp.

The Penthouse is the place to get your heads and hands dirty with ideas and new beginnings which fly from our rooftops directly into the city around us and beyond.

The Penthouse is the permanent studio base of Rosanne Robertson and Debbie Sharp.

Noise Above Noise was borne of The Penthouse- described as

“Performance series Noise Above Noise elevates Manchester’s underground scene to the fifth floor of a tower block”. Frances Morgan- The Wire.

“The Penthouse, found on the top floor of a 1960s office block at the less-saturated edge of the Northern Quarter, is not your average exhibition space. Formed by Rosanne Robertson and Debbie Sharp in late 2012, the studio offers access to the duo’s workspace, used by a variety of creatives to generate multi-sensory experiences, with an emphasis on the divergent and unique…The hands on environment is unlike any other in the city, and encourges experimentation like nowhere else”. Charlotte Davies- The Skinny.

Our main project of 2016 focuses on the effect of space and place on artistic production with dedicated artist residencies at The Penthouse and a public seminar on the subject Sept 2016. Email or tweet us for appointment- we aren’t usually open outside of public events which are advertised via website.
