About Studio Voltaire

About Studio Voltaire Studio Voltaire is a leading not–for–profit contemporary arts organisation in Clapham, South London. We provide affordable studios and offer a renowned programme of exhibitions as well as a localised education programme. These different strands offer unique and exciting ways for audiences to engage with contemporary art and culture.

For over 20 years, we have been supporting emerging and underrepresented artists at a pivotal point in their careers. We have established an ambitious and vibrant space that enjoys a national and international profile. Studio Voltaire is a place of constant artistic production and creativity, with a full year–round programme of exhibitions, events, participatory and educational projects, as well as our on–site complex of affordable artist studios.

In 2019, Studio Voltaire is embarking on a major £2.3 million capital project to expand and redevelop its current home in Clapham, South London. This timely and transformative redevelopment is the most ambitious transition in the organisations 23–year history. Studio Voltaire will close its doors to the public for a period of twelve months.

The new scheme will provide 42% more affordable studio space for artists through the building of a new mezzanine level, directly addressing London’s shortage of affordable artist’s workspace. Studio Voltaire’s existing studio building will be completely renovated to provide a range of high quality studios to over 75 artists, along with two live work units to house visiting artists and curators. Studio Voltaire will also launch a new Associates Programme, awarding ten artists free studios for two years, as well as a programme of professional development and mentoring.
