Please note, throughout the Christmas period we will be closed between 22 and 27 December
In November 2018, Elephant opens its first physical art space: Elephant West. Designed by the award-winning architecture studio Liddicoat & Goldhill, the project space occupies a repurposed petrol station adjacent to the BBC’s former headquarters on Wood Lane. Throughout the year we will bring a wide range of art and cultural experiences to this fast-developing area of West London.
As well as commissioning new site-responsive installations from emerging visual artists, the space will also play host to a wide range of events such as film screenings, dance performances, panel discussions, inspirational talks, yoga classes, DJ nights, cocktail-making workshops and live radio broadcasts. Open six days a week, it will be a dynamic, ever-changing environment offering something for everyone who drops by, with a café and bar serving morning coffees through to drinks in the evening.
Elephant West aims to establish a new model for cultural spaces; neither publicly funded nor a commercial gallery, we aim to support and promote emerging creative practice and build a community of the culturally interested around our programme. The space includes a café-bar, Fuel, and a small shop offering limited-edition prints, books, magazines and associated products. It will be available to hire for carefully selected organizations.
