Beaconsfield's holistic vision is to provide a critical space for creative enquiry. Founded to occupy a niche between the institution, the commercial and the 'alternative' the charity maintains a unique venue which has provided a laboratory and presentation space for artists since 1995.
Set up in the former Lambeth Ragged School by artists with a track record for organising grass-roots events, Beaconsfield commissions, and is commissioned, nationally and internationally and has a history of innovative collaboration with other organisations and individuals, on and off-site.
The annual programme typically includes a range of exhibitions, an evening membership club and interventions in public space.

Finnish-duo IC-98 return to Beaconsfield on a grand scale with new hand-drawn animations: Arkhipelagos (Navigating the Tides of Time), 2013 – a three channel video installation - and Arkhipelagos (Ebb), 2013.
This is IC-98’s second exhibition at Beaconsfield following their debut UK show in 2012. Visitors to Beaconsfield’s Arch space were enthralled by the highly detailed pencil-drawn animation, A View from the Other Side, which focussed on the slow passage of time in relation to architectural representation of human endeavour. Arkhipelagos builds on this work, with an elegiac take on planet earth and human mark-making on its surface.
Based in Turku, Finland, IC-98 is Visa Suonpää (b. 1968) and Patrik Söderlund (b. 1974). In 2015, IC-98 will represent Finland in the Venice Biennale.
