LASER is an exhibition and project space in Clerkenwell.
As the sister gallery of arebyte in Hackney Wick, LASER endeavours to encompass established ties with technology and new media work, in addition to promoting juxtapositions with sculpture, installation and performance.
LASER aims to provide a platform for emerging artists to engage with experimental projects and ideas around (but not subject to) overconsumption, shifting cultural narratives and the means of producing work in an overactive time.
We hope the temporal nature of the building and subsequent gallery space will encourage fluid, relevant and JUICY exhibitions and events.
arebyte is an art charity working mainly in New Media and Performance art, founded in 2013, named as London's most experimental space and nominated for Best Independent Cultural venue 2015. Since its inception, arebyte has curated and produced projects locally, internationally and online, receiving immense coverage in major press.
Outset Contemporary Art Fund is a hub for creative funding solutions for contemporary art with patronage at its core. Under curatorial guidance, supports exhibitions, productions, museum acquisitions and capital campaigns to benefit institutions that range in scale from grassroots organisations to leading international museums. Outset’s role is to establish and nurture relationships that allow patrons and corporate organisations to support selected art projects through financial assistance and strategic advice.
Studiomakers is an initiative led by Outset in association with Second Home, the Greater London Authority, PLP Architecture, Create and Bolton & Quinn. In response to the Artists' Workspace Study, a report commissioned in 2014 by the Mayor of London, which predicted the possible loss of up to 3,500 artists’ workspaces in London in the next 5 years, Studiomakers aims to provide entrepreneurial solutions in response to serious funding needs. Partnering with organisations in the property industry - from local authorities to landowners and private developers - the initiative looks to retain existing and create new affordable artist workspaces in London and the UK.
