The gallery space reflects our mission to provide entry points to viewers beyond framed, final pieces. It is broken down into three distinct segments which act as spaces to explore documentation of the artist's process, personal reference points, a prior body of work or simply an installation which contextualizes and personalizes the work.

Rubber Factory's curatorial vision revolves around contemporary photographic practices and seeks to make visible the processes which underpin the making of the work. As photography becomes ever more expansive and fragmentary as an ecosystem, there is also an unprecedented interest from the public to understand the language and potentialities of the photograph. How do we develop visual literacy within the community and its stakeholders while encouraging artists to experiment with the most honest iterations of their ideas? These are the tensions which occupy the mission statement of Rubber Factory.

It is founded by Mike Tan and the name "Rubber Factory" is a reference to his father's first business.
