DESCRIPTION

Parasol unit foundation for contemporary art is a not-for-profit exhibition space devoted to promoting contemporary art for the benefit of the public. The core activity of Parasol unit is an outstanding exhibition programme which shows innovative and thought-provoking work by international contemporary artists. The foundation mounts three to four exhibitions a year in a variety of media: sculpture, painting, installation, video and photography, including some specifically commissioned works. Most of the exhibitions are accompanied by a publication, an artist’s monograph or catalogue, which is distributed worldwide.

Parasol unit is a privately funded charity with the possibility of additional future funding coming from the public and private sectors. Parasol unit foundation for contemporary art attracts a wide audience of art professionals, artists, writers, critics, curators, collectors, lecturers, teachers, students, and the general public. Group and class visits can be arranged by appointment.


First Thursdays are late-night art and events in East London that take place on the first Thursday of every month. Parasol unit is delighted to have been an initiating partner in the First Thursdays scheme with the Whitechapel Gallery.
