Studio Voltaire is one of London’s leading independent arts organisations.
Established in 1994, Studio Voltaire has developed a reputation for supporting artists at a pivotal stage in their career through an ambitious public programme of exhibitions, commissions, live events and offsite projects at national and international level. We are proud of our unique way of working; developing close relationships with artists and the wider art community by being close to the creative process at a grassroots level. The programme aims to facilitate projects that may not always be supported within institutional or commercial frameworks, offering substantial critical and practical support to artists, enabling them to develop new work on their own terms. Studio Voltaire places great emphasis on risk-taking and allowing artists to explore new elements within their practice.
The organisation is committed to widening access to contemporary practice and runs an innovative and wide reaching education programme producing artist-led projects and activities for individuals and communities within the local area.
We provide a much-needed resource of affordable studios to London-based artists, and currently house over 40 artists, ranging from internationally recognised artists to recent graduates. The provision of artists’ studios with our exhibition and education programmes offers a special synergy and environment for the production and presentation of contemporary art.
