SPACE 50th Anniversary Artists’ Open Studios Weekend
22 — 23 September 2018


Free & all welcome

On Saturday 22 and Sunday 23 September, over 250 artists across 13 buildings will throw open their studio doors to the general public for SPACE’s biggest open studios event ever. Come and discover work by some of the UK’s top artists – from internationally acclaimed names to new and emerging talent. See behind the scenes of a working studio, meet artists, photographers, designers, illustrators and all sorts of creative people face to face and buy works of art directly from their studio.

SPACE’s CEO Anna Harding says: “Our open studios are always lively, buzzing events, and this year will be our biggest ever. This is a unique opportunity for local people to come and explore buildings that they probably pass every day without realising the ground-breaking, world-class art that is being created right on their doorstep.”

Studios that will be open from 12 until 6pm on the Saturday in Hackney include Belsham Street, Deborah House on Retreat Place, Martello Street and The Triangle near London Fields, Victor House on Richmond Road and upstairs at Stoke Newington Library. Sunday will see studios open at Eastway in Hackney Wick and in Tower Hamlets at Brickfields Road in Poplar plus Bridget Riley Studios and Britannia Works on Dace Road, Fish Island. Further afield, Havil Street and Haymerle Road studios in Southwark.

In addition, you can also purchase SPACE 50th Birthday Raffle tickets at each building with a chance to win a Royal Drawing School course worth £395, Cass Art materials voucher worth £250, 2 x £50 of Cass Art online vouchers, Dinner for two at Market Café, 2 x £50 meal at LARDO, £50 Climpson Coffee Hamper, Art Fund National Art Pass worth £67, 2 x £50 Great Art vouchers, ICA Green Membership, 4 Hackney Picturehouse cinema tickets, 2 Comedy Unleashed tickets, Rebel Rebel Flowers, 2 VIP tickets to London Art Fair, Art Books from HENI, books from Donlon, Breakfast at Bungalow’s Café, 3 bottles of Agua de Madre, Bottle of Prosecco from Pub on the Park and more.
