OUR HISTORY

R O O M opened in Shoreditch London in December 2007, having previously had its home in Bristol for four years. The initiative has now evolved and grown and Roaming ROOM opened in itís third gallery space in Marylebone, with COLLABORATORS 4 from October to December 2015.
Over the past four years we have established a relationship with the Portman Estate, which enables us to operate in different sites in Marylebone. This is a move away from conventional gallery spaces: the buildings are due for redevelopment, and therefore have a history, but are in a somewhat raw state.

Each space has been stripped of former domestic layers, to expose the interior architecture at itís simplest, whilst retaining an idea of memory and atmosphere. Here we offer a challenge to artists to intervene or engage with the space, from architectural intervention, installation, film, and performance to other artistic disciplines.

In the latest mews location, where we will be resident for two years, we have made a dramatic intervention featuring a black ceiling canopy, as a transforming element to connect the labyrinth of rooms.

Our programme for 2016 is being developed at the moment and will be announced on the website soon.

COLLABORATORS places emergent artists in amongst a previous generation of acclaimed practitioners and is the one selling show we produce annually or bi-annually.
