Standpoint Gallery is one of the leading artist-run gallery and studios in London. We do not represent artists. We curate shows from submission and invitation, concentrating on emerging/mid-career artists from the UK and internationally. All projects are developed in collaboration with selected artists and aim to provide a platform for innovative new work and ideas to promote rich cultural exchange. Standpoint is a recognised centre of excellence for artist-led activity and debate - our programme of public exhibitions, talks and discussions aims to promote diverse experimentation and analysis in all areas of contemporary practice.
The gallery is core-funded through Standpoint Studios, a registered charity comprising 5 large studios providing creative workspace for 10-15 established artists and makers with diverse specialist knowledge and contacts with leading museums and galleries.
The gallery runs the Mark Tanner Sculpture Award, a yearly award which offers £8,000 and a solo show to an exceptional emerging sculptor from Mainland UK.
Our visual art development residencies – Standpoint Futures – offer intensive input to the practice and career of talented emerging/mid career artists from across the UK. These residencies are delivered in partnership with prestigious artist-centred organisations from across the UK.
