DESCRIPTION

Karin Janssen Project Space is an independent exhibition space, run and programmed by Dutch artist Karin Janssen. 

Karin lives and works in both London and the Netherlands. After her studies at AKV St Joost in Den Bosch, the Netherlands, Karin set up various art projects in Ecuador, Peru, and Paraguay. She went on to undertake an Artist in Residency in Casa das Caldeiras in São Paulo, before returning to Amsterdam to found and set up NIKA Art Projects. She has exhibited internationally in the Netherlands, Brazil and the UK, and in April 2011 Karin opened her Project Space in London.  

Karin Janssen Project Space provides a platform for emerging and established artists from the UK and abroad, dedicating itself to experiment. It is situated in a renovated former hairdressers on Well Street in Hackney, East London. The space is evidently a part of the local community: nestled in between a family butcher and a pound shop, whilst at the same time maintaining an international presence. It is a non-commercial gallery, open free of charge to the public presenting a recurring programme of varied exhibitions. In between exhibitions the space is used as a studio by Karin and stays open to the public.
