The Concept Space was founded in March 2016 with a vision of being a contemporary art hub. A unique platform for artists, curators and collectors to express their passion and vision for contemporary art with program of talks, discussions, projects, residencies, exhibitions, installations and various ambitious collaborations.
Founded by our Director KB Stowe who has an in-depth knowledge and understanding of collecting and curating contemporary art in today's ever-changing taste and aspiration, the Platform prides itself in the support of young, emerging and established artist practice. The art practice is at the core of its approach and the recognition of Grade A artists that collectors can support and invest in.
Housed in a semi-industrial facility which has been transformed into a spacious 1800 sq ft of exhibition and project space to show works including off-site projects by emerging and established British and international artists. With emphasis on art practice and to encourage engagement of a new generation of artists, curators and collectors, the Space armed with the freedom and flexibility to run a parallel program of cultural and commercial agenda has the art practice and the artist at its core makes it a unique proposition.
Located in an area gaining a reputation as London’s latest art hub with spaces such as Jerwood Space, White Cube, Tannery Projects, Drawing Room, Art Bermondsey Project Space, Vitrine to name a few, it aims to present works that encourage exploration and experimentation within contemporary art practice through collaborative non-for-profit projects and commisions.
