THE WALL Project

THE WALL project will take the existing raw space of a car park and transform its wall into a VIBRANT OUTDOOR GALLERY. We aim to soften it and create something stunning. Think anti-industrial, a complete TRANSFORMATION. It will be an opportunity for artists to showcase their work in one of the largest artistic communities in East London.Hackney Downs Studios is fast becoming one of London’s most dynamic creative networks. In the past eleven months we have transformed the site from a former print works to creative studios and event spaces, as well as opening our café, The Russet.Artists will be supplied with plywood sheets to work on, which will then be attached directly to the wall. The sheets will be roughly (1220mm by 1220mm). All other materials will need to be provided by the artists and we encourage the use of a variety of DIFFERENT MEDIUMS. A space within Hackney Downs Studios will be provided for two days in late November in which time the panels will be completed.The opening of the EXHIBITION will be part of First Thursdays on the 6th December. We will be inviting press coverage and we will be documenting the process throughout. The work will be displayed for a minimum of 6 months. Alongside The Wall there is additional gallery space to exhibit work at the back of The Russet café.We require a sample of your work or blog/web address and a sketch or plan of what you propose for a section of the wall. The DEADLINE for submissions is Wednesday 14th November.If you have any questions regarding the project or wish to submit, please email: or Facebook event: us @LouTheWall”
