Reusing Empty Office Space
This Big City talks with the organizers behind London-based Specs Gallery about how they're reusing an empty office space for their exhibition.
"This Big City: So what are you planning on doing with this venture?
Harry Owen-Jones: Through 3Space we've been given the opportunity to use this space. Obviously an office environment is not something you'd normally use for exhibiting art, but there's this move away from exhibiting in white cubes, so this is exactly the type of thing that we thought would work for us. That we're not having to pay for it is also a bonus, as we're a Community Interest Company. And it's huge! We've got a huge amount of space to not only exhibit traditional framed work, but also put on large sculptures and installations as well."
