Established in 1974, Spacex enables access to contemporary visual art in the South West via a programme of projects and events. The organisation works with artists to realise ambitions, pursue new directions and take risks. Through investment in artists at a critical stage in their career, Spacex progresses emerging talent. As an educational charity Spacex has an excellent record of delivering innovative and accessible learning projects.
Collaboration lies at the heart of Spacex. It brings together artists and audiences, initiating dialogues and partnerships to develop projects and commissions. To ensure sustained development Spacex maintains long-lasting relationships with artists and curators, as well as local cultural and educational institutions, arts organisations and funders.
Rooted in the locality of Exeter, the programme aims to contribute to a wider critical debate, regionally nationally and internationally. Spacex finds new ways to capture the interest of a wide range of people, inspiring engagement with and participation in contemporary art.
Spacex was set up in 1974 in Exeter city centre by an artist cooperative. It opened in a 19th Century warehouse between the High Street and the quayside, where it is still based today. The original purpose was to offer affordable studio space to artists and a venue in which they could exhibit their work. In the early 1990s Spacex became a registered charity and a publicly funded contemporary gallery. Our pioneering programme has received ongoing critical acclaim.
