OUTPOST is an artist run gallery based in Norwich committed to the uncompromising presentation of contemporary art. A core programme of 11 exhibitions per year, each opening on the 1st of the month, 6 - 9pm and run from the 2nd to 21st of the month, 12 - 6pm (no exhibition in January). A programme of events and offsite projects runs alongside.
A membership scheme is operated and is vital to OUTPOST’s activity. Artist Members are encouraged to submit material to the Members Archive; a source from which exhibitions can be selected and independent curators can use as a resource. Membership costs £15 per year, a days invigilation can be provided in lieu of payment. Membership support for OUTPOST is invaluable, extending beyond the financial and ensuring that a credible context for contemporary art in Norwich is recognised and sustained. A committee of up to 8 members run the gallery with a limit of two years service each to ensure that selection and organisational processes remain fresh. OUTPOST was founded in November 2004 with financial support form Arts Council England East, Norfolk County Council, Norwich City Council and Norwich Gallery.
