You are cordially invited to the opening on Friday, 3rd October 2008 6pm - late.
The Wharf Road Project brings more than 20 innovative contemporary art initiatives together for the first time in a central location, creating a seminal showcase for the more unusual and innovative. The Wharf Road Project is not an art fair, but a large-scale exhibition featuring the best of London’s specialist and experimental art spaces, complemented by a programme of performances, screenings, music and guided tours.
Participants have each been allocated one of the 5-storey venue’s rooms to curate exhibitions which reflect their artistic endeavours and curatorial ethos. This mash-up of different organisations will create an opportunity to engage with established art spaces as well as some of the newest and most exciting art initiatives in London.
The Wenlock building is owned by Workspace Group plc who have long been supporters of the arts and London’s creative industries. V22 is the first cooperatively run art collection, owned by artists themselves as well as external investor-patrons. Our ethos is to make the best new art accessible to more people in more ways. The Wharf Road Project is a celebration of artists, their supporters and the wider industry. V22 will feature new works for its collection selected by Martin Westwood and Martin Creed.
