Chisenhale Art Place

Chisenhale Summer of Art

Chisenhale Art Place is an arts education charity in East London.  Occupying a former factory on Chisenhale Road, it is home to three distinct  initiatives:  two independent arts organisations; Chisenhale Dance Space and Chisenhale Gallery; and Chisenhale Studios which comprises 40 artist studios.

Chisenhale Dance Space is a member-led organisation supporting experimentation in dance and performance, and an affordable home for the dance community. Chisenhale Dance offers classes for children and adults, artist development and support programmes for professional dance artists, and a boundary-pushing performance programme both on-site and beyond.

Chisenhale Gallery was founded by artists. The same spirit of possibility that changed an empty veneer factory into an art gallery guides its work today. Chisenhale Gallery commissions and produces contemporary art, supporting international and UK-based artists to make their most ambitious work to date. The gallery is committed to its audiences having access to the energy and ideas of an ever-expanding artist community.

Chisenhale Studios offer secure affordable workspace to visual artists at all stages of their career. The work of the Studio artists reflects the diversity of contemporary art practice and promotes a wider public understanding of artistic processes through open sharing events, classes, studio visits and professional development programmes.  The Studios are directly managed by Chisenhale Art Place.
