Goldsmiths is a world centre for teaching and researching contemporary art. For the past 30 years it has provided successive generations of young artists, curators, gallerists and art writers with the education and the confidence to create, exhibit and disseminate great art. Goldsmiths has made a vital contribution to the expanding ecosystem of the London art world, establishing it internationally as a capital of visual art.
The Goldsmiths Gallery Project builds on this history. An early 20th century bath house at the heart of the campus will be transformed into a 400m2 contemporary art gallery. This will create educational and professional opportunities for students to engage with artists and curators from London, the UK and internationally; providing a platform for experimentation through exhibitions, talks, residencies and art projects.
Enabling us to realise our vision are an extraordinary group of artists who studied at Goldsmiths and who have gone on to define the art of our time. A who’s who of the last three decades of British art, the artists contributing to this charity auction have not only transformed British art and art world, but have resonated globally. The works they have donated are a reflection of their tremendous generosity and of their affection and support for Goldsmiths as a place that educates and nurtures young artists. The Goldsmiths Gallery will be a testament to the tremendous legacy left us by our alumni, and ensure that legacy continues into the future.
