Dye House is a new contemporary art space in Hackney Wick, London presenting exhibitions from emerging and recent graduate artists working in the UK and internationally. The project is setup to support the growing artist community in the area, and encourage ambitious projects and open dialogue. The space will host performances, artist talks, short film screenings, live discussion forums, and launch events for enterprising local projects.
The space is being opened by Fred Howell and Max Atkins, two of the founding members of Bristol Diving School, a collaborative arts network engaged in exchange projects around the world. The original site in Bristol became a recognised platform for presenting and testing the limits of collaborative art, while its growing membership continues to extend its practice offsite.
Alongside our programme of exhibitions and events at Dye House, we want to establish facilities to support the incorporation of new technology into the fine arts, in response to the emergence of hack spaces and a general movement towards multidisciplinary practices increasingly using technology to explore and obscure existing boundaries. The facilities will include 3D scanners and printers, sensors and other specialist equipment which artists will be able to engage with to create new work, with new approaches shaping the trajectory of the project.
There will also be a coffee shop, and coworking desk spaces available to rent in the mezzanine area overlooking the gallery. The building will house other creative businesses including architects, design studios, pop-up catering, and a roof garden.
Thank you for your support!
