The ASC Gallery was established in 2010 with an annual program of five exhibitions p.a. together with regular talks and live events. The gallery aims to encourage dialogue in and through new ideas in visual art and promote visual art to new audiences.
The overriding remit of the gallery is to work ‘collaboratively’ with artists on new commissions developed for the space. The ASC Gallery aims to provide a platform for work that, as a result of its ambition or non commercial nature, may not easily find a platform elsewhere.
The gallery recognises that as a non commercial public space we do not have any of the limitations that commercial galleries are defined by. We aim to encourage the artists we collaborate with, to develop work for the gallery without commercial consideration.
The gallery is located in Southwark SE1 and occupies a 1000 sq ft space within ASC’s HQ building. The property is a nine storey, circa 1960’s building, formally South Bank University.
The Gallery is directly funded and managed by Artists Studio Company.
The project extends Peer Sessions’ ongoing commitment to postgraduate level peer-led art education and collaboration
Conversations Over Chocolate Squares is the second part of the Peer Sessions: TRIALOGUES residency project at ASC Gallery in Southwark, showcasing new and collaborative work from artists Tina Hage, Charlotte Warne Thomas and Claudia Djabbari, created during their two-week residency at ASC.
Together the artists explore their shared interests through the manipulation of modular structures and focus on aspects of process and production through their sculpture and site-specific installation.
Peer Sessions is a non-profit crit group founded in 2009 as an educational support network for postgraduate artists, offering peer mentoring and feedback.
TRIALOGUES extends Peer Sessions’ commitment to postgraduate level art education and collaboration, through a series of three short residencies. Three groups of three artists will work together in the ASC Gallery space to create new work, each resulting in three exhibitions. A publication and educational workshops accompany the project.
