If you would like to be considered for our next project, please email a statement of intent and samples of your work / a link to your website to firstname.lastname@example.org - please remember that we are only able to work with current art students and recent graduates working within the London area.
We anticipate our next exhibition to be held in early Summer 2012.
Specs Gallery is a CIC (Community Interest Company), whose aim is to showcase the work of emerging visual artists within the London area. We operate a ‘pop-up’ gallery model, meaning our only permanent gallery space is online. We use empty properties around the city to exhibit our shows, providing not only a flexible and unique gallery environment, but also contributing to the regeneration of the city at a time when more properties are empty than ever before.
We work with art students and recent graduates based in London and the surrounding area, showcasing the talent of artists from across a range of disciplines, including fashion, graphics, illustration and architecture, as well as the more traditional fine art mediums. As artists become involved with Specs and their work is featured in exhibitions, they are encouraged to build connections with their peers, students and graduates from different art schools and backgrounds, which will hopefully lead to the development of exciting new collaborations between these artists.
