Cell Project Space
London, United Kingdom
Cell is a self funding organisation based in East London, founded and directed by Milika Muritu & Richard Priestley with a non-profit seeking constitution. Cell Project Space presents an ongoing programme of exhibitions, projects, talks, screenings, and events. It is a non commercial gallery in that the organisation does not represent individual artists or as yet participate within international Art Fairs, although any sales made as a result of exhibiting works, fund exhibition operations and the commissioning of new works. The exhibition space is open free of charge to the public for 10 months in a calender year with fully operational wheelchair access.
Founded in 2000, Cell has now been designing and creating artists' workspace for rent at affordable rates in East London for over 10 years. Cells founders are committed to building creative hubs and networks within their buildings and the communities around them, with the intent of nurturing and evolving a dynamic environment to promote cross fertilisation for the benefit of its occupants and for the local community. Cell are committed to offering artists studios who are want to develop their practice and need to use their studio regularly, thus generating an infectious hive of activity. In turn, this activity generates a creative hub for its occupants.
Cells studios generate the finance to permit the continuity of an exhibition platform in the form of a Project Space which is based in Bethnal Green along with Cells headquarters. The intent and ethos of the Project Space is to encourage and promote urgent developments in the visual arts. The Project Space is dedicated to showing incisive contemporary art to a local, national and international audience. As part of the organisation’s commitment to the professional development of artists, Cell’s key aims are to offer a high level of curatorial, administrative and practical support, hosting a range of educational talks and workshops, which run alongside an exhibitions programme.
