Artist Takeover
Looking back at one of our favourite events

In 2019, we launched a new project called Artist Takeover. Imagine a space where an artist uses the walls, the windows and everything as their canvas. From March to November, we invited numerous artists to show off their work how they wanted in our gallery space. Each artist had a week to show their work in a fast-moving show format. This is Artist Takeover.
