WW Projects

WW Projects is an integral part of WW Gallery's ongoing programme, and exists to support artists with the space and time to develop work outside of commercial or profit-driven concerns, and beyond material or outcome-driven conclusions. Equal importance is placed on both the process or 'becoming' of the work and its final exhibition. This approach allows us to nurture artists in the production of a wide range of experimental, provisional, time-based, and performative works, as well as ambitious commissions, and it allows us to host meaningful residencies and participate in international exhibition opportunities such as the Venice Biennale. We believe this also provides the best conditions for experiencing art and challenging audiences.

Patio Projects

‘Patio Projects' is WW Gallery's rolling public art programme on view 24/7.

WW recently held an open call inviting proposals for a series of provisional, site-specific, outdoor installations in the 6 square metre street-facing patio space at WW, 30 Queensdown Road.

Selected artists are awarded a £100 bursary to assist them in the challenge of realising a public art work on public view 24/7 for 28 days.

Three artists were initally commissioned to kick-off Patio Projects and WW subsequently selected a further 11 artists from the open submission, completing the programme up to January 2013.

Public response to the first few Patio Projects has been overwhelmingly positive and the works have engaged new art audiences, including local residents and children.
