The Showroom is a contemporary art space focused on collaborative approaches to cultural production within its locality and beyond. The Showroom commissions and produces art and discourse; providing an engaging, collaborative programme that challenges what art can be and do for a wide range of audiences, including art professionals and the local community.
The Showroom’s programme focuses on collaborative and process-driven approaches to production be that artwork, exhibitions, events, discussions, publications, knowledge and relationships. Through major commissions and smaller projects, The Showroom works with artists and other practitioners who have not previously had significant exposure in London, often introducing international artists to London, and working in partnership with other individuals and organisations.
The Showroom also works closely with the local community, and has developed strong, long-term relationships with local groups and individuals who bring together to work in partnership with artists on specific projects and commissions which feed into the programme as a whole. Public events and workshops form part of these commissions, with a broader programme of publishing, research and events including discussions, screenings, panels, book launches and performances running alongside.
