S1 Artspace is a charity that has grown in profile and scale since it was founded by a group of Sheffield based artists in 1995 as a sustainable, affordable artist studio and gallery complex.
Their mission is to enable artists to develop new work through support, resources and opportunities to exhibit, and to educate and inspire a new generation of artists. Their aim is to deliver a programme that connects with a broad audience both nationally and internationally through an inspiring programme that supports the production, presentation and debate of contemporary art. Through the exhibitions programme, we have commissioned over 75 new works and presented work by over 500 artists, this includes six Turner Prize winners and a further six nominees. In 2010, we moved to new larger premises to support a growing aspiration to realise more ambitious projects. This has included major solo exhibitions of new commissioned work by Michael Fullerton, Nicolas Deshayes, Jennifer West and Eva Berendes; and group exhibitions presenting new work by artists including Jessica Warboys, Cally Spooner, Michael Dean, Tyler Coburn, Ryan Mosley, Jeremy Deller and Hito Steyerl.
Now based at the iconic Park Hill estate, the largest listed structure in Europe, S1 is embarking on a major step change for both the organisation and Sheffield. Our programme over the next five years will allow us to lay the artistic and organisational foundations upon which to build S1’s long-term vision of establishing a new flagship venue for the arts that will transform the cultural landscape and offer for Sheffield.
