The Theatre of Buildings is a project in which we explore the potential of showing contemporary art in unexpected architectural spaces. This 6 month project will support 47 artists working in installation, film, performance and 2 dimensional work. This overarching project features four exhibitions in four separate buildings. These include Collaborators 5: The Hand of the Artist (September 2018), Hammersmith Library Project (21st November-31st January 2019), Gracepoint Film Event (February 2019) and Greta Alfaro (March/April 2019).
