Having recently celebrated their 10th anniversary, ]performance s p a c e ['s mission remains; to facilitate the prime conditions for the production of performance art in the UK (and beyond). We are committed to supporting challenging and difficult work that embraces performance art as an ever-evolving medium.
]performance s p a c e [ is the UK's only studio and exhibition space dedicated to performance art. Currently based in Folkestone's Creative Quarter (Kent), our organisation continues to cultivate time-based work that critically and physically pushes the boundaries of body, time and space.
]ps[ has always strived to act as a hub or home to national and international artists in transit; developing the performance art network while acting as a place of research and development outside of mainstream education and gallery structures. We maintain a platform and project space in London, through collaboration with VSSL studio, and have close collaborative relationships with organisations such as the Live Art Development Agency, Live Art UK, and Venice International Performance Art Week.
Founded by former co-director Bean and current director Benjamin Sebastian in Hackney Wick (London) in 2011, ]ps[ remains an artist-led initiative, committed to our identity as a DIY, anti-institutional space.
]ps[ recently welcomed Joseph Morgan Schofield as their new assistant director, Ash McNaughton as programmes manager, and Marcin Gawin as coordinator.
