I am looking for a space in the SE1 area to hold an art exhibition in October for three days (including evenings). Does anyone know of an empty shop/bar/pub/office/warehouse/workshop we could use which would be suitable? We are four artists and one of us is a SE1 resident. Please contact me on 07948 727035 or email me at [email protected]
There are many places that are empty within SE1, the problem lies with developers and estate agents being open to the idea of these spaces being used for short periods without the need for insurance. The spaces also have to usable inasmuch they have workable walls and floors; am I not right in thinking the Long Lane development is essentially all floor and no walls other than glass? Not an impossible space if you work with free standing objects but problematic for some. Also a means of power supply if only for lighting, often not available on shell interiors. That for me is the difficulty, I have a choice of several empty units near me which have been empty for years, but none have any means of power. Very frustrating.
