CHELSEA space is a public exhibiting space where invited art and design professionals are encouraged to work on experimental curatorial projects that may not otherwise be realised.
The emphasis is on curatorial experimentation, the exposure of process and ideas, and re-readings of artworks and archives and their re-presentation for contemporary audiences. CHELSEA space is a platform for discussion and questions rather than definitive answers.
CHELSEA space is sited on the Millbank campus of Chelsea College of Arts, next to Tate Britain, and provides extra-curricular interest for the school and open access to the widest possible audiences.

Lesley Foxcroft: Corners
- 30 September — 30 October 2015
The work of sculptor Lesley Foxcroft is situated in the tradition of minimalism. Working primarily with MDF and on other occasions, paper, Foxcroft renders this hard edged yet everyday material into delicate forms, saying, “I like the idea that the uncomplicated has a purpose: that the material does not give a sculpture its value, it is the artist that does”. Through the process of folding, cutting, pressing and stacking, spacial arrangements are created, producing a dialogue between an aesthetic commonplace and the gallery architecture.
Working with the architecture of CHELSEA space, Foxcroft will make a series of new works entitled Corners. The exhibition will also be accompanied by a publication produced with the artist.
Lesley Foxcroft (b. Sheffield, 1949) studied at Camberwell School of Arts and has exhibited nationally and internationally since 1974. Recent solo shows include Combination (2004) and Works with MDF (2010) — both at Annaly Juda gallery and MDF (2011) at A arte Studio Invernizzi, Milan
