Exhibit Here is so excited to announce that we will be returning to Bargehouse in November 2019. This entire monumental 4-storey raw warehouse space will once again be ours for one week and we can't wait to fill this vast blank canvas with all of your amazing art.

Bargehouse provides a unique and versatile backdrop for exhibitions and its location is amazing; it's situated within Oxo Tower Wharf on the South Bank of the River Thames, just behind the famous Oxo Tower. Its neighbours are Tate Modern, and the ITV Studios, which are just around the corner.

There are 13 different spaces within Bargehouse, each room is incredibly atmospheric with original features and quirks, and Exhibit Here is looking for 120 artists to transform them into a haunting and immersive maze of art. 

There is no theme to the exhibition, it has been left open to encourage a diverse a response, however if your work has a haunting element to it, this would be a bonus as artwork of this nature would especially add to the overpowering atmosphere in Bargehouse.

If you would like the opportunity to showcase your work at Bargehouse simply register as an Exhibit Here artist (for free) and upload your artwork. 

Exhibit Here is looking for artwork in the following mediums: 
 
  • Canvas or framed wall based artworks
  • Small sculptures (please note artists must provide their own plinths)
