Standpoint Gallery and Studios

Standpoint Gallery exterior

Standpoint Gallery is a leading artist-run gallery and studios in London. It does not represent artists, but curates 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.

Standpoint Futures visual art development residencies are for emerging/mid career artists, based outside Greater London. They are designed to be flexible and responsive to the project, needs and desired outcomes of individual participants. The residency's chief aims are to provide high quality, individualised opportunities to develop the artist's practice and career, and to integrate London and the regional UK art world to promote access and the exchange of ideas.

The Mark Tanner Sculpture Award is the most significant award for emerging artists working in the field of sculpture in the UK: offering £8,000 in financial support towards the making of new work, plus a solo show at Standpoint Gallery.

The gallery is funded through and an integral part of Standpoint Studios, a registered charity comprising 5 large studios providing creative workspace for 10-15 artists and makers.

All income made by Standpoint Gallery is re-invested into the organisation in order to support its activities as a charity.

The Return Of The Nullifiers

  • Until 13 February 2016 *on now
  • From 15 January 2016

Exploring fiction and fabulation as a process of collaboration, Baker, Hagen and Poulson will transform Standpoint Gallery, and themselves from day to day ‘Dudmen’ to divine ‘Nullifiers’. The borders between the mundane and the visionary are thoroughly perforated. It is the ancient story of sailors returning to their native shores with tales and talismans of other worlds.

Suitable for

  • Any age

The Workers

  • 25 February 2016 6-8:30pm
  • 26 February — 2 April 2016

Alongside their making for Collis, all of the selected artists are art practitioners in their own rights. They tend to share an affinity with her way of working, but at the same time, their diverse backgrounds and approaches to art-making have contributed to the life of the studio.

In acknowledging these relationships, the exhibition makes visible an obscured economy of manufacture, informal training and subsumed creativity. It values the unvalued, choosing to celebrate lines of mutual support, cross-pollination and resonance. The creative frustrations that come with making another artist's work - all the input that is absorbed, all that is discarded - play against the satisfactions and energies of social making. The years of the studio generate a micro-culture, a studio language of jokes, methodologies, improvisations, and idiosyncratic habits that bubble up in these works.
