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.

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.

RUN strived to facilitate collaboration by operating within a non-hierarchal framework that endeavoured to promote debate, innovation, sharing of information and experience for all involved. RUN projects encompassed different formats such as lectures, publications and record releases in a move to engage with a larger and more diverse audience.

Hickster Projects

Hickster Projects

about: 

Hickster Projects is a small experimental platform set up by Sue Kennington, It takes place in a remote space near Siena , Italy - where there is a growing audience of international art collectors, who would be unlikely to visit shows on the periphery of western urban centres and thus to showcase some of this exciting emerging artistic talent to a new and international audience. After showcasing the work at Hickster Projects, in the summer, the show then hopes to migrate to an urban ‘base’ – and find another audience.

RAUMX LOndon

RAUMX- London

about: 

From mid 2013 Martina Geccelli has set up this art and architecture project space within her own studio in Kentish Town, London.

Part of the concept is that selected artists, or architects can introduce their work to a smaller, interested audience . RAUMX provides an open, intimate platform, outside of the commercial setting of a gallery. Beside presenting work to the public the space offers opportunities for an active exchange in form of talks and discussions and more intimate gatherings.
