Enclave is a new-build arts infrastructure in Deptford, South London, housing a strip of nine project spaces, gallery, art offices and coffee shop. The project spaces will actively pursue independent programs benefiting from Enclave's communal action to generate collaborations and production both on-site and much further afield. The Enclave gallery will evolve with a programme of outcomes by these spaces with additional curatorial symposia, exchanges, international residencies and multi-cultural film clubs that aim to develop both institutional dialogue and social engagement.
An experimental Enclave web portal designed by Jean-Christophe Nicolas is now online providing live access to all project space announcements and a virtual gallery.
Enclave sits within a new masterplan for Deptford and was originally built by council and renewal developers. temporarycontemporary have taken over the site to create what will become a self-sustaining model of artist networks and public outcome. Enclave is itself an urban action conceived by artist Anthony Gross. It is an on-going research project around entropy and social enterprise - a result of the Event Horizon social club and The Old Police Station projects.
The first programmed exhibition at the Enclave gallery will be Francis Thorburn solo show, August 30 until September 30, 2012.
