Studio Voltaire supports artists to work in new social and cultural contexts initiating projects in the public realm. In partnership with long-term community and civic partners, we provide new opportunities for people to encounter art in their locale. Working across London, we have commissioned artists to present work in hospitals, on street corners, across the London Underground network and in established heritage sites.
We have a strong history of working with artists on large-scale public commissions, including Phyllida Barlow, William Scott, David McDiarmid, Nnena Kalu, Edward Thomasson, Sharon Hayes, Anthea Hamilton and Nicholas Byrne, Joanne Tatham and Tom O’Sullivan and Monster Chetwynd.
Since 2017, we have partnered with This is Clapham to establish a series of ambitious public art projects in our local area.
