ArtLacuna is an artist-led space set up in May 2013 in an old coroner's office in Clapham Junction. It accommodates artist studios, project and exhibition space. ArtLacuna aims to open up dialogues across creative disciplines, providing a resource for local professional and student communities. The lacuna, or lexical gap, represents a gap in translation, a place where multiple meanings are applied, where meanings shift and new interpretations can be made.

ArtLacuna aims to provide a creative hub which closes the gap between disciplines and explores the creative process as experienced by artists, designers and makers. To this end, the project will provide working space for artists, project space for visiting artists, and forums for discussion and conversation. We believe that there is a gap where such cross disciplinary dialogues should be taking place, for the benefit of the creative industries, design community and fine artists alike.

As a collective we aim to provide space for collaborative and cross-disciplinary projects, and a place for unrepresented and emerging artists to realise and show work. We run a varied program of events, including a film festival, experimental talks events, artist discussion groups, reading groups, workshops and exhibitions. An occasional publication accompanies the findings of our artist research events.

Vital to all events and exhibitions we both organise and host at ArtLacuna, is identifying, executing and evaluating their critical content and context, and subsequently ensuring that this work is accessible.
