AboutEnclave is a new-build architectural infrastructure in Deptford, South London, housing a strip of nine project spaces, gallery, art offices and coffee shop.
The project spaces will actively pursue independent programmes benefiting from Enclave's communal action to generate collaborations and production both on-site and much further afield. Enclave will evolve via a gallery programme of outcomes by these spaces with additional curatorial symposia, exchanges, international residencies and multi-cultural film clubs that aim to develop both institutional dialogue and social engagement.
The inaugural exhibition, Artist Urban Action, launches throughout the entire site presenting the initial range of resident independent activity alongside a series of new commissions.
An Enclave web portal launches May 1st and will provide live access to all project space announcements and a virtual gallery. In the meantime for further information about Enclave and Artist Urban Action, please request our press pack at email@example.com
Enclave sits within a new masterplan for Deptford and was originally built by council and renewal developers. temporarycontemporary have taken over the site to create what will become a self-sustaining model of artist networks and public outcome. Enclave is itself an urban action conceived by artist Anthony Gross. It is an on-going research project around entropy and social enterprise - a result of the Event Horizon social club and continuing The Old Police Station projects. www.tempcontemp.co.uk, www.theoldpolicestation.org
The first programmed exhibition at the Enclave gallery will be Francis Thorburn solo show, 30th August - 30th September 2012.
There are two remaining units available at Enclave after the launch exhibition - we are inviting new and established, national and international organisations with public outcome to apply for a permanent low-cost space. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for application information.
