Empty Shop HQ: The Opening

January 29, 2010


Art just got interesting

So, Nick posted about us finally getting the keys to the new building and officially moving in (exciting stuff) and now it’s all systems go to get the building up to scratch in time for the big opening.

You can read about the building here, but I thought i would fill you guys in on the opening itself and what you can expect.

Set over two floors and 5 exhibition spaces this even will be our biggest to date, a fitting launch for our new HQ…

  • The 2nd Annual Empty Shop Open Exhibition
  • Work by our new studio group “The FreeBirds”
  • The first residency in the Stairwell Gallery
  • Other selected works including an original wall drawing by The Cloud Commission
  • The unveiling of The Smallest Gallery in the World
  • An awesome time!

The opening will be from 6pm – 9pm then we are all off to Jam Jah at Allington House for an after show party.

Full details will follow closer to the date

Fully independent, completely unfunded… art just got interesting

    Hi Rosie,

    The website gives a good indication of our ethos and what we are about but we are always more than happy to meet new people and discuss what we are about. Things are pretty hectic at the moment in the build up to the opening of the new premises on Friday 19th Feb, but if you come down to the show and introduce yourself we can have a chat. You will get to see the building first hand and see the studio spaces too. If you can’t make it please feel free to email us to arrange a time for you to come along for a cup of tea and a chat.
