ecArtspace was founded by Architect and Town Planner, Angela Diamandidou in 1998; as a peripatetic gallery it started exhibiting contemporary visual art in vacant warehouse buildings in Clerkenwell, London. ecArtspace aimed to bring art ‘out of the gallery’ and into spaces that were ‘between use’. ecArtspace transformed the urban buildings and spaces for a short time in their history allowing an interaction between art and the urban development process.
All the exhibitions have been curated in different spaces, both in Clerkenwell, London and in Mitte, Berlin. Each has been unique and provided new challenges for the artists and the curator. A catalogue was published for each exhibition in order to document the event, these are available on request.
The ecArtspace’s exhibitions are more than just shows of art. They seek to connect art with space, to create a dynamism between the work and the raw surroundings.
