Located on the campus of Goldsmiths, University of London, Goldsmiths Centre for Contemporary Art is London’s newest contemporary arts institution, and open to everyone. Hosting world-class exhibitions by international artists, and providing a space for established and emergent practices, the institution aims to enhance Goldsmiths’ reputation for excellence and innovation in the arts. Curatorially ambitious, the exhibition programme has been devised to encompass a wide-range of exhibition-making, including new commissions, historical presentations, survey exhibitions, and long-term research projects. These are iterated in response to the spaces that make up the institution, ranging from top lit white cubes to a converted iron-lined Victorian water tank.

The institution’s modes of address are responsive to a diverse range of audiences, through community engagement, educational projects, publications, an online journal, and roving public programme. The latter will be hosted in the Oak Foundation Gallery; a double height space set in the centre of the building. Punctured by apertures from other galleries, it spatially emphasises a porosity between artistic practice and theory. Hosting talks, performances, screenings and other events related to the wider exhibition programme, alongside a series of shorter-term exhibitions, this space is the discursive heart of the institution.
