In March this year Corridor8 were warmly welcomed by S1 Artspace to hold the launch of Corridor8 Issue 3, Part 2. Corridor8 #3.2 focused on artist-led spaces in the North and with Sheffield being home to the most artists’ studios outside of London, it only seemed appropriate the that Sheffield should be the focus of the issue, and play host to this edition.
Since March, S1 Artspace has continued to develop and grow, holding many more great events and exhibitions. Regrettably the last few years of consistent funding cuts across the arts are seriously jeopardising organisations like S1 Artspace, which are vital to the local arts scene in Sheffield and ensuring that the arts community continues to thrive and develop.
S1 Artspace are asking for your generosity to support the on-going activities so that they can continue our work into 2013. Share the link, visit their crowd funding page and make a donation.
S1 Artspace is a non-profit charity that provides a free gallery space dedicated to contemporary art as well as affordable studio spaces for artists and creative businesses based in Sheffield.
S1 Artspace was founded by artists who simply wanted a decent space to work in Sheffield’s city centre and in 2003 a dedicated gallery space was established. Through their exhibitions programme, S1 Artspace supports and presents work by both emerging and established artists and have a strong commitment to commissioning new work. Over the past few years, S1 have presented exhibitions with Haegue Yang, Keith Wilson, Jennifer West, George Henry Longly, Eva Berendes, Karla Black, Jessica Warboys and Melissa Gordon, amongst many many more.
In 2010, S1 Artpsace relocated to Trafalgar House, a 16,000 sq ft industrial building across two floors. Over their history S1 Artspace have exhibited work by 700 artists, presented 70 exhibitions, commissioned 55 new artworks, accommodated 115 studio holders and attracted an audience of 30,000 visitors.
